Twenty-eight years ago on Friday — when the siege at the US Capitol was far in the future — white extremists did something very similar in South Africa. Right-wingers rallying outside that country's World Trade Centre drove an armored truck through the building’s glass windows and terrorized the delegates inside for nearly an hour. And they encountered little resistance from security forces. The World’s Rupa Shenoy speaks to Prof Christi van der Westhuizen and discusses the surprising steps South Africa took next.
