Now in todays news from South Africa (3rd August 2004) comes this article.

South African News Article



"Johannesburg - South Africa might be more susceptible to terror attacks and more South Africans could be involved in them than was originally thought.

This came to light after two South Africans were arrested in Pakistan in connection with alleged links to al-Qaeda.

According to an expert on terror, the men had been planning to launch terror attacks on tourism attractions in Johannesburg.

Dr Firoz Abubakar Ganjee, a Johannesburg doctor, and Zubair Ismael, 20, a student from Laudium, Tshwane, were captured last Sunday in Gujrat, in eastern Pakistan."

"In Johannesburg, a terror attack would be more likely on the commercial sector.

But, Botha thought a terror attack in South Africa was improbable - "Strategically, it wouldn't make sense."

"South Africa is not involved in the war in Iraq and is also not pro-United States. The government is also sympathetic towards Palestine."

My sister in law is a missionary in South Africa. I hope that nothing happens there. All this violence is very unnecessary.
