S Africa murder suspects charged

Court charges two men over murder of Eugene Terreblanche, the white-supremacist leader.

    A South African court has charged two men with the murder of Eugene Terreblanche, the far-right, white supremacist leader, four days after he was beaten to death in Ventersdorp, a town in the country's northwest.

    The men, aged 15 and a 28, have been accused of killing Terreblanche over unpaid wages.  

    They have also appeared in court on charges of house-breaking, attempted robbery and crimen injuria - which often refers to racial insult.

    Haru Mutasa reports from Ventersdorp, where tensions between black and white and white communities were quickly apparent outside the courtroom.
