Eugene Terreblanche, the South African white supremacist leader, has been killed on his farm in the country's northwest.  

The man whose very name spoke of the apartheid era - it translates as white earth - was one of the country's most polarising figures.

Police have confirmed they now have two young men in custody, both of whom were farm workers employed by Terreblanche.

They are suspected of bludgeoning him to death following an apparent dispute over wages.
