Two South African blacks were stoned to death in continuing political violence, and a black miner died in tribal fighting, raising the death toll in six days to 33. The stonings occurred in the black township of Soweto, outside Johannesburg, police said, adding that few details were available. The miner was killed during fighting between Xhosa and Basotho tribesmen at Vaal Reefs, the world's largest gold mine, according to the Anglo American Corp., the mine's owner.
