The killing of five black youths in a South African army raid on an alleged guerrilla hide-out has weakened F W de Klerk's chances of winning the Nobel Peace Prize, according to the South African Sunday Times, Reuter reports from Johannesburg. 'It is a tragedy that has sullied a record of peace-making and political courage . . . that reputedly made him a candidate, with Nelson Mandela, for the Nobel Peace Prize,' the paper said. 'Such honours, one imagines, are now lost to him.'
