Four white South Africans have been charged with treason over a suspected plot to attack a conference of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) attended by President Jacob Zuma and scores of top government officials.

The four were brought into court in the central city of Bloemfontein on Tuesday surrounded by security guards armed with assault rifles. Prosecutors said one of the men "wanted to target the ANC elective conference" currently under way in the city.
