CAPE TOWN (Reuter, AFP) - South Africa and its nominally independent Transkei tribal 'homeland' have launched rival investigations of the Azanian People's Liberation Army (APLA), the black guerrilla group behind two attacks on whites.

The Supreme Court judge Richard Goldstone said the Pretoria inquiry, starting next month, would be monitored by a UN observer. And the Transkei military ruler, Bantu Holomisa, reportedly asked President FW de Klerk to co-operate with a judicial inquiry in the homeland into allegations that APLA operates from its territory.

In Johannesburg, APLA's parent body, the Pan-Africanist Congress, said attacks would go on until there was a 'commitment' by the government to stop township violence and hold elections.
