An estimated 100 protesters clashed with police outside the Senekal Magistrate's Court in Free State on Tuesday morning, where two suspects appeared in connection with the murder of 21-year-old farm manager Brendin Horner.

Horner's body was found in an open field early on Friday morning; he had been tied to a pole with a rope around his neck. 

The protesters, who are believed to be mostly farmers, left a nearby gathering of 1 500 people held in honour of Horner, and demanded the suspects be handed over to them.
