The World

South African police said that four blacks were killed in scattered anti-apartheid violence, while a policeman was shot and wounded in a black neighborhood in Cape province. Officials say that more than 800 people, most of them blacks, have died in rioting against apartheid that began in September, 1984. Meanwhile, the Johannesburg Sunday Star reported that a letter used by the government as evidence to restrict the press is bogus and part of a shocking “disinformation scandal.” The letter was purportedly written by a Briton who said he saw a television crew filming a phony riot in South Africa. The London Daily Telegraph, which published the letter, apologized to its readers.
