A South African court convicted five white right-wingers yesterday of murdering four blacks, including a 13-year-old boy, after stopping their cars at a roadblock in rural west Transvaal, Reuter reports.

The five, all members of the extremist Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB), were also found guilty of attempting to murder six other blacks at the roadblock the whites set up during the night of 12 December. Judgment on two other AWB members charged with the same murders will be given today, when sentencing is also expected.
