BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa - South African police said on Monday they had foiled a plot by suspected right-wing extremists to bomb a major meeting of the ruling African National Congress (ANC).

Four men, aged between 40 and 50, were arrested on Sunday, the police said in a statement.

"They planned to plant a bomb in one of the tents," national police spokesman Phuti Setati said.

Close to 5,000 ANC members, including President Jacob Zuma, government ministers and top business people are attending the conference in the central city of Bloemfontein under heavy police presence.
