‘Fake’ interpreter at Mandela ceremony was in angry group that burned two men to death

A relative and three friends of Thamsanqa Jantjie, 34, told the AP that the man was accused with two others of attacking two men found with a stolen TV and burning them to death in 2003. But Jantjie, who said he had a schizophrenic episode during Nelson Mandela's memorial service, avoided trial because authorities found him mentally unfit.
