A tour bus filled with German travel agents was held up in Khayelitsha on Wednesday night. The bus stopped during a tour in Makhaza at about 6PM, and the tourists disembarked to have a look at the tradtitional dancing that was taking place. Armed men then got onto the bus and robbed the tourists who had remained on the bus. The group was said to be extremely traumatised, and police had to organise counselling for them. The group were the first of 700 German travel agents to arrive in Cape Town as part of a programme to encourage tourism to South Africa. Police spokesperson Billy Jones says that a case of armed robbery has been opened.
