(Continued from Page 1)
THE FOCUS OF the unrest was the
township of Elsie's River, where plain-
clothes police ina civilian minibus fired
point blank into a group of demon-
strators marking the anniversary of the
troubles in Soweto, the black Johan-
nesburg township where 1975 race riots
led to the deaths of about 600 people.
Police said "a number" of people
were killed and wounded in the current
unrest, but imposed a news blackout on
details. All reporters, including foreign
correspondents, have been banned
from entering trouble spots.
Elsie's River emerged as a flashpoint
May 28 with the deaths of two mixed-
race youths demonstrating against
racially segregated education. Those
shootings were the first casualties at-
tributed to police since a school boycott
began in the Cape peninsula more than
two months ago.
IN THE INDIAN Ocean port city of
Durban, police reportedly used tear gas
and nightsticks to disperse students at
the University. of Durban-Westville af-
ter the administration building at the
campus was stoned.
The South African Press Association,
the domestic news agency, quoted
eyewitnesses as saying a number of
people were injured in the skirmishes.
The university was to have reopened af-
ter being forced to close earlier this
month because its Asian students sup-
ported a nationwide school boycott by
students of mixed-race against inferior
education.
