Terror suspect out on bail

Phalaborwa – One of the four men accused of planning to commit terrorism in Phalaborwa was released on bail on Friday, the SABC reported.

Twenty-one-year-old André Stroh was granted bail of R3 000 in the Phalaborwa Magistrate's Court.

Stroh was one of six men initially arrested for allegedly violating the grave of former diplomat Norman Mashabane. Upon closer investigation it was found the violation of the grave was actually part of a plot to commit acts of terrorism against black people.

Hawks spokesperson, Musa Zondi, said police found the men with large quantities of explosives and ammunition.

"We discovered they had quite a number of arms and ammunition and had capacity to manufacture explosives. They were found in possession of a large number of explosives," he said.

The charges against two of the men were withdrawn, while one of the accused was granted bail of R1 000 earlier.

Stroh was ordered to report at the local police station every Friday and not to leave Phalaborwa without notifying the police.

The bail applications of the other two suspects were still continuing.
