Mosque Killer Was 'Out of His Mind', Victim's Son Says

An unidentified knife-wielding man, who killed three people at a mosque in Malmesbury, Cape Town, charged at police before being fatally shot. There are currently no indications that the attack is linked to one that occurred at a mosque in Verulam, Durban during May, where one man was killed and two were injured after three suspects targeted worshippers during afternoon prayers, National Police Commissioner Khehla Sitole said.
