Disturbing video shows white men forcing black man in coffin
Three months after Victor Mlotshwa was forced into a coffin at gunpoint, he is getting a chance at justice since video of his tormentors' actions has surfaced online.
In the video, two white men suddenly appear around Mlotshwa as he was walking down a path in South Africa and accuse him of trespassing.
"There was a footpath there, and I decided to use it," he said. "The next thing, there was a grave and then a coffin. There was nothing I could do because the other man had a gun."

The men then forced Mlotshwa into a nearby coffin and threatened to pour gasoline on him and light him on fire. At one point in the video, the men can be seen closing the lid on the terrified Mlotshwa before the video ends.
Mlotshwa wasn't able to get justice when he was attacked, but the video has given him a new chance.
"He didn't have evidence to prove what had happened, it's only two weeks back that he decided to open the case. He didn't think anyone would believe him," Mlotshwa's brother, Thobile, told local media.
Police were able to track down Willem Oosthuizen and Theo Martins Jackson, and the two appeared in court on Wednesday on charges of kidnapping and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. They will face trial in January and remain in jail until then.
