One killed as armed persons attack worshippers in South African mosque

I have spoken to two witnesses who were on the property at the time of the attack, they clearly informed me that they were Egyptian nationals that had attacked them.

South Africa's state broadcaster SABC reported that the three people were in critical condition after the attack on the mosque in the eastern town of Verulam. Initially it was believed that all three victims had been killed. Police Captain Nqobile Gwala in KwaZulu-Natal province said investigators are looking at three counts of attempted murder and arson. "Paramedics or doctors who can assist can report to the scene", Rusa said in an earlier statement.
