2 South African Whites Charged for Forcing a Black in Coffin

Tuesday, 15 November 2016 12:54 PM

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South African media say two white men who were filmed forcing a black man into a coffin face assault charges.

The eNCA television news outlet reported that the suspects will appear in court Wednesday in the town of Middelburg.

A video shows a man, identified as Victor Rethabile, cowering and moaning in a coffin as one of his tormentors pushes a part of the lid on to his head and upper body.

The Economic Freedom Fighters, a political opposition party, described the incident as a reminder of the racism that lingers in South Africa 22 years after the end of white minority rule.
