Johannesburg - Two men were killed during a fight in an informal settlement in Moreleta Park, Pretoria, Gauteng police said on Sunday.

A fight broke out between two groups from different squatter camps on Saturday night, Captain Colette Weilbach said.

"During the fight, two men from Lesotho, aged between 30 and 40 years, were killed and another one seriously injured."

The injured man was taken to a local hospital.
