Durban - An armed gang of approximately 12 to 15 robbers struck a cash transit vehicle at the Whitehouse Shopping Centre in Phoenix, north of Durban, on Thursday.
According to a source, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, the armed gang severely damaged the vehicle. It was unclear if they had taken any money.
Other members then entered the mall, allegedly to rob another store. They opened fire on shoppers, wounding five, before escaping the scene.
