Johannesburg pupil stabbed to death
Johannesburg - A Grade 11 pupil was stabbed to death outside the Vorentoe High School in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, on Wednesday, an official said.
Health spokesperson Charles Phahlane said the boy was apparently attacked and stabbed by five people after school had finished for the day.
"The perpetrators were immediately arrested as a policeman who was fetching his child at the school called for backup," he said.
"The learner passed on either on his way to, or upon arrival, at hospital."
This was the second murder of a schoolboy in the country this week.
On Tuesday 16-year-old Raylin Fortuin was stabbed to death at the Beauvallon Secondary School in Valhalla Park, Cape Town.
