AFP

PORT ELIZABETH: An armed gang stormed into a rural police station in South Africa yesterday and stole firearms in an attack that left five officers and a soldier dead, police said, reports AFP.

The robbers entered the police station in the southern village of Engcobo shortly after midnight, opening fire on the officers and seizing two others, who were later shot and killed, police spokesman Vish Naidoo said.

“During the early hours of this morning six people were killed when robbers attacked Engcobo police station,” Naidoo told AFP.

“Five of the six were on-duty police officers. Three police officers were killed at the police station when robbers attacked the station and randomly opened fire on the members.”

Naidoo said the robbers made off with firearms and bundled two other officers into a police car.

 The bodies of the two were later found dumped on the side of a road. The attackers also shot and killed a soldier as they fled.
