Apartheid-era officials charged





South African national prosecutors have charged two of the most senior public security officials of the apartheid era with attempted murder.

Former Police Minister Adriaan Vlok and ex-police chief Johan van der Merwe are accused of plotting to kill a prominent opponent of apartheid in 1989.

Prosecutors said they and three others attempted to kill Rev Frank Chikane by lining his clothes with a nerve toxin.
