Hawks to give detail on Thulsie terror charges


Two suspects appeared in the Johannesburg magistrate's court in connection with the killing of two police officers.

JOHANNESBURG - Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie are expected to reveal their response to the terrorism charges against them when they apply for bail on Tuesday.

Their lawyers have tried -- and failed -- to force the state to hand over documents linked to the case.

The twin brothers stand accused of planning to blow up a US diplomatic mission and Jewish institutions in Johannesburg.

The Hawks also claim the two were prevented from flying to Syria, allegedly to join Islamic State.

The twins converted to Islam last year. Their family insists they are religious, but not violent.

The state is opposing bail and is expected to detail what evidence they have against the pair in the Johannesburg magistrate&39;s court on Tuesday.
