South African man jailed for Terreblanche murder

A court in South Africa has sentenced a black farm worker to life in prison for the murder of white supremacist leader Eugene Terreblanche.

The judge ruled that Chris Mahlangu killed Terreblanche, 71, with an axe following a pay dispute in April 2010.

The killing highlighted South Africa's fragile race relations, more than 15 years after white minority rule ended.
