President Nelson Mandela said he would consider an amnesty for white extremists convicted of political crimes, including bomb blasts that killed 21 people this year, AP reports from Cape Town.

He was speaking after talks with Ferdi Hartzenberg of the Conservative Party. Mr Mandela said he was willing to meet Mr Hartzenberg again, and expects to meet Eugene TerreBlanche, leader of the neo-Nazi Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB), for the first time next week. Both groups boycotted last month's all-race election.
