Chris Mahlangu one of the two men charged with beating and killing the notorious white supremacist Eugene Terre'Blanche at his farmhouse in South Africa in 2010 has been found guilty in a South African court today. The second man Patrick Ndlovu, who was just 15 at the time has been acquitted.

The AWB group led by Eugene Terre'Blanche waged a violent campaign to resist the end of apartheid and the establishment of democratic rule in 1994.

Here are the two men in court, they claimed there were aggravating circumstances surrounding the death including rape which were later proved unfounded.

There was a heavy police presence outside the court .Supporters of the ruling African National Congress were singing and dancing to songs of struggle. Some carried placards reading : "No to racism". A scuffle also broke out.

Supporters of the far right extreme group AWB were also outside the court. The distinctive red Nazi style flag with the AWB logo on is clearly visible.

Their leader Andries Visagie addressed the media with some inflammatory views.

When this case first came to light there were fears that this conviction could trigger political violence, dividing the country along racial lines. But general opinion is that, this case is more a grisly killing than a racially motivated response to AWB's ideology.
