South Africa: Cash-in-Transit Vehicle Bombed in KZN

A cash-in-transit vehicle has been bombed in a daring heist between Msinga and Greytown in KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

National police spokesperson Brigadier Vish Naidoo told News24 that the vehicle was travelling from Msinga to Greytown at about 15:30 when it was attacked by unknown men.

The security guards had collected cash from the Msinga Mall, he said.

"While at KwaKopi between Msinga and Greytown, their vehicle was attacked by an unknown number of occupants travelling in two vehicles. They shot at the security vehicle causing the driver to lose control," he said.

Three guards were injured, he said.

Naidoo said the suspects used explosives to gain entry into the vehicle.

"They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash," said Naidoo.

The injured guards were taken to hospital, added Naidoo.
