South Africa's former President Jacob Zuma has been charged with corruption linked to a 1990s arms deal, according to a report by the BBC.

The 75-year-old appeared at the High Court in Durban on Friday morning as the judge adjourned the case until 8 June.

Mr Zuma and his legal team insist the charges are trumped up and politically motivated.
