U.S. Sanctions Several Alleged IS Members in South Africa

This comes a week after the U.S. Embassy issued a warning on a potential terror attack in Sandton targeting large gatherings. Durban businessman Farhad Hoomer, along with three associates, have been accused of supporting IS. Hoomer was detained in 2018 along with two suspects for alleged involvement in several bomb attacks in Durban.
