White River - The case against two men accused of rhino poaching in the Kruger National Park was postponed in the White River Magistrate's Court on Monday, said the Hawks.

Captain Paul Ramaloko said the Mozambican nationals would remain in custody until their next appearance on February 6.

The men were caught by game rangers at the park on Saturday.

A third man, who was with the pair, was shot dead by rangers when the suspected poachers apparently fired at them.

Police confiscated a hunting rifle following the arrest. - Sapa
