5 Killed in South African Church Attack,Hostages Freed_Ada Nkong

Five people have been killed after attackers stormed a South African church, reportedly amid an argument over its leadership.

South African police said they had rescued men, women and children from a “hostage situation” on the outskirts of Johannesburg on Saturday morning.
They have also arrested at least 40 people, and seized dozens of weapons.

Eyewitnesses say the men who stormed the International Pentecostal holiness church were part of a splinter group.

The church’s leadership has reportedly been the subject of infighting since its former leader died in 2016.

According to local media reports, police had previously been called to the church following a shoot-out between members in 2018.
