Five police officers and a soldier have been shot dead during a raid on their station in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province.
In a statement, the South African Government News Agency said three officers were killed instantly.
The off-duty soldier was shot as the assailants fled, taking two other officers hostage. Their bodies were found 6km (4 miles) down the road.
A government statement said both men had been shot “execution style”.
