Three African National Congress guerrillas who refused to take part in their murder trial because they claimed to be prisoners of war were sentenced to death in Johannesburg for four killings. The three wore olive-green military uniforms with ANC colors throughout the proceedings. Their only active role in the trial came when one read a statement that said: "We are soldiers in a patriotic army struggling to establish democracy and peace. We believe that we are prisoners of war." Jabu Masina, 36, Ting-Ting Masango, 28, and Neo Potsane, 27, were convicted of killing two black policemen, a black town council member and the council member's sister-in law.
