SA talks resume after deal

South African leaders resumed multi-party talks on democracy after the white minority government and the black opposition patched up a row over armed struggle and police raids, Reuter reports from Johannesburg.

The Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) withdrew a threat to quit the talks after a meeting with two cabinet ministers. The government agreed to free three PAC leaders arrested last week.
