JOHANNESBURG - The mastermind of a white supremacist plot to assassinate Nelson Mandela and drive blacks out of South Africa was found guilty of high treason on Thursday after a trial that started almost a decade ago.


The verdict on former university lecturer Mike du Toit was the first member of the "Boeremag", or "Boer Army", a rag-tag militia of apartheid loyalists, in connection with a botched 2002 coup attempt in Africa's biggest economy.


He will be sentenced at a later date. Verdicts on another 21 are expected over the next few weeks.
