Eugene Terreblanche, the South African white far-right leader, who fought to preserve apartheid in the early 1990s, has been beaten and hacked to death at his farm.

"He was hacked to death while he was taking a nap," one family friend, a member of Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB), told the Reuters news agency, requesting anonymity.

Local media quoted another party member on Saturday as saying he was beaten with pipes and machetes.

Police in the town of Ventersdorp said two men were in custody over the killing and the motive was unclear.
