JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's scandal-plagued President Jacob Zuma has survived a motion of no confidence by his own party, Beeld, an Afrikaans-language daily reported on Tuesday without naming its sources.

No formal vote took place at the three-day long conference of the ANC's national executive committee meeting in Pretoria that ended late on Monday, the paper said.

The ANC will hold a media briefing at 1200 GMT on Tuesday.
