WORLD IN BRIEF : SOUTH AFRICA : 20 Blacks Killed in Township Violence

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Factional fighting and confrontations between activists and authorities killed 20 blacks and wounded six police officers over the weekend, authorities said. This included 13 people killed in unrest in KwaZulu, homeland of Zulu leader Mangosuthu Gatsha Buthelezi, whose supporters have been involved in some of the worst fighting. Buthelezi's Inkatha movement opposes apartheid but is more conservative than the African National Congress. More than 200 people have been killed in four weeks of fighting.
