Special Report Transcript Episode 25, Section 5, Time 33:33

June 26, 1986. Shortly after midnight a group of 13 ANC activists launches a hand grenade attack on the house of a policeman on the East Rand. The grenades and the limpet mine explode in their faces. Six activists and two innocent bystanders die. The story has been told by its executioner. // De Kock gave me some booby trapped, you know rigged hand grenades. And one SPM limpet mine, the big one, to give to them and then this stuff we handed to them. And they were told to choose whatever target they want, 12 midnight. And they blew themselves up.

Notes: Scene of explosion; Joe Mamasela interviewed
