Gunmen carrying automatic weapons and hand grenade opened fire on a wine-tasting party at a predominantly white golf club in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa over the weekend, killing four people and wounding 17.

The assault is certain to stir alarm in white communities around the nation, where the ruling minority lives behind eight-foot walls and loops of barbed wire.
