Johannesburg - Two more people have been arrested in connection with the killing of four Pakistani nationals in Rocklands, Mitchells Plain, Western Cape police said on Sunday.

“This brings the number of arrests (made by police in this case) to three,” said Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana.

“The investigation is at a very sensitive stage at the moment. We therefore cannot release any further details on the case.”

He said the two, aged between 34 and 41 years old, were facing charges ranging from murder, attempted murder, house robbery and hijacking.

They were expected to appear in the Mitchells Plain Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
