Seizure of White-owned Farmland Begins in South Africa

South Africa has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers. According to a Johannesburg-based newspaper, City Press, two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to buy the properties collapsed.
