Police Kill 91 In Course Of Year

Cape Town'. March 10. — South African police shot and killed 91 adults and three, juveniles during the course of their duties in 1972, the Police Minister (Mr Muller) told Parliament today.

Figures for the previous year were 52 adults and two juveniles, he said.

Most of the people killed last year were Africans — 77 — and only three of the remainder were white. The other 14 were coloureds (people of mixed race).

A further 299 people were wounded by police. The majority were non-whites — 237 Africans, 52 coloureds and 10 whites. — NZPA-Reuter.
