South Africa's apartheid worse, black bishop says

Five years after the suspicious death of jailed black leader Steve Biko, the situation for blacks under apartheid in South Africa is far worse, Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu said.

Rev. Tutu, General Secretary of the South African Council of Churches, cited several signs Pretoria is resisting peaceful change: this year's death of two jailed government opponents, extention of banning orders limiting the activities of black activists, and the exclusion of the country's black majority from any political role in Prime Minister P. W. Botha's proposals for limited power-sharing with Asians and people of mixed race. Tutu is in the US to visit his daughter and her American husband.
