South Africa warns neighbors after blast

A severe explosion here has drawn a warning from the South African government. Following Friday's car bomb blast outside South African Air Force headquarters, the government publicly warned neighboring states that it may seek revenge. Law and Order Minister Louis Le Grange said no neighboring government giving refuge to members of the banned African National Congress (ANC) could expect South Africa to sit back. The ANC was blamed for the blast, although in Nairobi, the rebel group's president, Oliver Tambo, said it was too early to say whether his organization carried out the attack.

Dennis Hurley, a Roman Catholic archbishop, laid much of the blame on the government's racial segregation policies. He said the escalation in violence was a response by desperate people to the built-in violence in an apartheid society.
