Pretoria, South Africa

Three black guerrillas were hanged in Pretoria after South Africa rejected international appeals for clemency. The three members of the African National Congress were charged with attacking police stations, which resulted in four deaths.

Two convicted murderers were also hanged alongside the three ANC guerrillas.
