SOUTH AFRICA: $16.5 MILLION AIRPORT CAPER The government agency that runs South Africa's airports is being bombarded with criticism after up to 15 armed men stormed a South African Airways Boeing 747 jet on Saturday and looted it of a cash shipment reported to total $16.5 million. The money, flown from Britain, was en route to Tanzania and another unidentified African nation when the gang, armed with AK-47 rifles, overpowered guards on an ostensibly secure apron at Johannesburg International Airport. Johannesburg's airport has been repeatedly hit by gangs targeting large hauls of cash and other valuables. MICHAEL WINES (NYT)
