JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) - Bombers have destroyed a farm store owned by one of the few white members of the African National Congress in the eastern Cape. It was unclear if the bombing, last Sunday, was linked to a spate of recent attacks on whites by black guerrillas which have prompted 'revenge' attacks by white extremists.

The farm attack came hours before the first sitting of a committee set up by the Goldstone Commission to investigate the military wing of the radical black Pan Africanist Congress and the Azanian People's Liberation Army which has declared war on whites and is active in the eastern Cape.

Police said at least 13 people had been killed in 'unrest-related' incidents since New Year's Day.
