White supremacist Terre'blanche laid to rest


A funeral has taken place for the South African white supremacist, Eugene Terre’blanche.

The leader of the Afrikaners Resistance Movement, AWB, was allegedly beaten to death on his farm last Saturday by two disgruntled black workers.

Around 3,000 people are commemorating his controversial life in the north-western rural town of Ventersdorp.

Although his party has long been on the sidelines of South African politics, his murder has sparked fears of an outbreak of violence between his followers and the black population.

Several police and army units have been deployed in and around Ventersdorp to prevent possible clashes.
