Case against terror-accused Thulsie twins postponed

The trial against terror-accused twins Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie due to commence on Monday in the Johannesburg High Court has been postponed to 13 November.

The brothers were arrested in July 2016 after being accused of planning attacks on Jewish and American interests in South Africa.
