Farm attacks in South Africa this year have claimed more lives than the war in Afghanistan, an agricultural organisation said in a report on Thursday.

Beeld newspaper reported that over the past eight years, 282 British soldiers died in Afghanistan, quoting numbers provided by the BBC broadcaster.
