South Alrica i UPI) — The autopsy on Steve Biko shows the South African black leader suffered broken ribs and burns in-addition to critical brain damage while in police custody, the Johannesburg Sunday Express says.' South African newspapers previously had reported the 30-year-old Biko suffered brain injuries while in police custody, but the Express said Sunday the autopsy also found evidence of other injuries. "Mr. Biko had severe injuries to the rib cage, where two ribs arc reported lo have been parted from the sternum (breastbone-i, various cauterizations or burns about the body and probable renal failure, though an analysis of" kidney tissue apparently is still underwav." The Express said. The newspaper quoted "sources" close to the in- - vestigation into Biko's death as the basis for its report. The government says Biko died after a hunger strike, but has delayed the release of the autopsy report several times and it now may be delayed another two weeks. Biko died in a police cell on Sept, 12. His death sparked rioting throughout South Africa and 'raised an international outcry. He was the 20th person to die in police custody since last March. The autopsy report was written by two government physicians and a doctor appointed by Biko's family. Police. Minister Jimmy Kruge'r'said Biko'died after an eight-day hunger strike and had the "democratic right" to starve himself <to death. But newspapers have published numerous reports at variance with Kruger's account. "It is urgent that the facts surrounding Biko's death are officially made known," the Rapport newspaper said "in Johannesburg'. "A hanging cloud of suspicion cannot be tolerated. "A number of, sometimes horrible, (news) reports are appearing here and overseas. Possible causes of death are being mentioned, with all kinds of implications. And none of these have yet been denied," the newspaper said. The Rand Daily Mail last week was "reprimanded" by the South African press council on the urgent request of Kruger. ' Kruger said a headline —"No sigh of. hunger strike — Biko doctors" — over an investigative story dealing with Biko's death was not substantiated by the report.
