Durban – A violent mob has beaten, stabbed and stoned to death two men they believed had kidnapped a child. This in the heart of busy Pinetown, near Durban, late on Tuesday afternoon.
Massive crowds gathered around two sites that had been cordoned off – one in Stanfield Lane and another in Hill Street.
Witnesses said the two men who were attacked, were accused of abducting a child.
This appears, however, to have been a misunderstanding.
Hundreds of people first swooped on the men in Stanfield Lane and toppled a car
