Tutu attacks ANC over Dalai Lama visa failure

South Africa's ruling ANC has rejected Archbishop Desmond Tutu's assertion that the party was "worse than the apartheid government".

The Nobel Peace laureate's remarks came after the Dalai Lama cancelled a trip to South Africa as the government had failed to grant him a visa on time.

During a nationally televised news conference, Archbishop Tutu said its actions were those expected of the apartheid government.
