Police to patrol trains and railway stations

Deputy Safety and Security Minister Susan Shabangu has promised that police will be brought in to patrol trains and railway stations across the country. Speaking at a news conference at the Cape Town railway station this morning, Shabangu said more police would be trained to deal exclusively with train security. At least 20 people have been thrown off moving trains around the country, allegedly by striking security guards.

Meanwhile, two men have died and a third is in a critical condition after the latest incidents of train violence in KwaZulu-Natal. Police say eight men attacked a passenger with a knife and stones. Two other men were attacked and thrown off separate trains. Police suspect the attacks are related to the ongoing security guard strike.
