Seven Women From One Family Killed In South Africa

Gunmen have shot dead seven women in South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province, local media reports. The unknown gunmen stormed two family homes next to each other, before opening fire.

The governing African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal said it had learned of the killings with "great pain and sadness".

"Clearly, it is not right in our province and needs all of us, beyond political affiliations, to join hands in an effort to defeat this new tendency," its spokesman Mdumiseni Ntuli said.

Two South African news sites are reporting that eight people were killed in the shooting at two homes in KwaZulu-Natal province.

They include six children and two elderly women, News24 and IOL are reporting.
