South Africa's AWB retracts vow to avenge killing of its leader

A South African white supremacist group has retracted its statement vowing to avenge the killing of its leader, Eugene TerreBlanche, a spokesman for the group said Monday.

"The statement was made by an emotional member of our organization," said Pieter Steyn, a spokesman for the neo-Nazi Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, also called the Afrikaner Resistance Movement or AWB.

"The person has been reprimanded. We want a homeland where we can govern ourselves, and violence is not going to do our cause any good."
