Cape Town - Two Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) were bombed in Goodwood, Cape Town, on Friday morning, police said.

"An explosion was heard around 03:10 on Vasco Boulevard, shortly thereafter a second explosion was heard," Captain Frederick van Wyk said.

He said a witness saw a white car with three or four people flee the scene.

It is unclear whether money was taken. The group was still at large.

Van Wyk said a case of malicious damage to property was being investigated.

    So two ATM are BOMBED and SAPS are investigating a case of maliciuos damage to property. Huh!!!!! That's like saying a person was shot dead and the police are investigating a case of discharging a firearm in a public place. What about investigating attempted robbery or possession of explosives?

      Why do still read a News24 article and think all avenues are reported correctly??
