Some members of the media including broadcasters such as the SABC have been denied access to the High Court in Cape Town, where an urgent bail application for the alleged Parliament arsonist, Zandile Mafe, is being heard.
It is unclear at this stage why certain members of the media have been
barred from covering proceedings.
Roads outside the court have been cordoned off.
Members of the Azanian People's Organisation (AZAPO), are also demonstrating outside the court in support of Mafe.
