US Federal authorities have charged a man who labelled a human relations counsellor a "race traitor" and made death threats towards her. This is thought to be the first federal case against a website. Ryan Wilson's site, Alpha HQ, carried photographs and animated pictures of victim Bonnie Johuri's office being blown up.

Authorities said the site - which no longer operates - carried this statement: "Traitors like this should beware, for in our day, they will be hung from the neck from the nearest tree or lamp post." Johuri is said to have fled her home after the threats were made, fearing for her life and the safety of her children. She told AP: "I hope it serves as a wake-up call for communities who think these things can't happen to them." ®
