Gunmen Kill Family Of 10 In South Africa
Unknown gunmen stormed a house and killed 10 members of a family on Friday, in the latest mass shooting to rock crime-ridden South Africa.
Police said seven women and three men were fatally wounded in Imbali, a township south of Pietermaritzburg in the southeastern province of KwaZulu-Natal.
“According to initial police reports, unknown gunmen stormed a Pietermaritzburg homestead and ambushed the family,” police spokeswoman Lirandzu Themba said in a statement.
The motive for the killing was not immediately clear.
Mass shootings are relatively common in South Africa, which has one of the world’s highest murder rates.
