White supremacist terrorists

Johannesburg, South Africa

The South African government has thwarted white extremists who planned to kill millions of blacks by poisoning their water supply, intelligence officials said this week. A group calling itself the Boer Freedom Alliance allegedly plotted to pour lethal pesticides into reservoirs that serve Soweto and other black townships, where 10 million people live. Several members were arrested. In recent weeks dozens of white Afrikaners have been caught with bombs and other weapons, in a sign of increasing white frustration with the post-apartheid order. “Our culture is under attack,” said Jaap Diedericks, head of an Afrikaans-language radio station. “We’re expected to speak only bloody English.”
