Cape Town - The al Jama-Ah political party on Friday condemned the murders of five Pakistanis in Mitchells Plain.

"The killings of Muslims from other countries in South Africa is a blot against all Muslims in South Africa," party president Ganief Hendricks said in a statement.

He said his party was concerned about the escalation of the killing of Muslims in South Africa. The five Pakistanis were killed at their bakery in Rocklands, Mitchells Plain, Cape Town, on Tuesday around 22:00.

Western Cape police said two men entered the premises, demanded the safe and opened fire. Four of the six people died on the scene. One died in hospital. The other was wounded. The attackers fled with the safe.

A 28-year-old man was arrested in connection with the crime.

In August last year Muhammad Fayaaz Kazi was beaten to death in a fight outside the Chicken Licken outlet in Magaliesburg.
