The World

December 19, 1985

A white farmer was killed near South Africa's border with Mozambique, increasing fears of stepped-up guerrilla attacks and retaliatory strikes by the white-minority government against its black-ruled neighbors. In unconfirmed reports, two pro-government newspapers said that guerrillas killed Lukas Marais, 39, and that police found shell casings from an AK-47 assault rifle near the scene. Meanwhile, police reported anti-apartheid rioting, but no deaths, in six black townships, which they would not name.
