Man arrested in connection with burning of two Somalis
A 29-year-old man was arrested after two Somalis were found burnt to death in their shop at Duncan Village in East London, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.
Spokesperson Captain Stephen Marais said the deceased, Said Khalif (17) and Badal Shiek Mohamed (26), were confronted by four men who took money and household goods before killing both on Sunday at about 2:30am.
“They were killed and set alight. Police found their burnt bodies on arrival.”
Stephen said a man was arrested after police received information from the public regarding some of the stolen goods. He said a generator was found in the man’s possession.
The man was due to appear in the East London Magistrate’s Court on a charge of possession of suspected stolen property, he said.—Sapa.
