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.

A total of 91 British soldiers died this year in the war in Afghanistan, compared to 111 people who were killed in farm attacks in South Africa over the same period, said Chris van Zyl, assistant manager of the Transvaal Landbou Union (TLU).

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

The article is referring to British soldiers fighting in Afghanistan (not entire losses by all Allies), however, the quantity of deaths is alarming.
Can the government continue to blame petty criminals? Is there a concerted effort to kill or force farmers from their land?
Some are saying that farmers are an easy target simply because of their isolation, but if that is the case, there should be more protection.
