Terreblanche death brings Zuma appeal for calm

South African President Jacob Zuma has appealed for calm after the killing of the white supremacist leader, Eugene Terreblanche.

Mr Zuma said South Africans must not allow anyone to take advantage of the "terrible deed" by inciting racial hatred.

Police said Mr Terreblanche had been beaten to death in a dispute with two farm workers over unpaid wages.

Mr Terreblanche's far-right movement urged its members to be calm.
