The National Press Club has come out in support of the SABC for screening footage of police violently attacking a protester in the Free State town of Ficksburg earlier this week.

The protester, Andries Tatane, died as a result of the injuries he sustained.

The Press Club’s Yusuf Abramjee says the incident needed to be made public, despite the fact that Tatane’s family and friends are not impressed

Meanwhile, the SA National Defence Force continues to patrol the streets of Ficksburg today.

A library and a community hall were destroyed by angry protesters yesterday while two other municipal buildings were set on fire.

Reports suggest there have been no further protests this afternoon.
