Five S African white extremists charged with terrorism

South African investigators said five white extremists had been charged with terrorism in connection with a plot to blow up black townships.



Johannesburg: South African investigators on Friday said five white extremists had been charged with
terrorism in connection with a plot to blow up black townships
ahead of the World Cup in June.

"They were conspiring to engage in terrorist
activities, which includes the fact that they wanted to blow
up areas in which black people live," said Musa Zondi,
spokesman of the special investigations unit.

Zondi said a total of seven men were arrested at the
end of April in the northern town of Phalaborwa.

"The seven were charged with terrorism. Charges
against two were withdrawn today," said Zondi.
