Johannesburg - Five robbers held workers hostage at a petrol station in Rustenburg on Tuesday while they blew up the ATM, North West police said.

Captain Tselane Nkala said the FNB ATM at the Sasol Garage was blown up around noon.

"The men fled with a undisclosed amount of money."

Nkala said no injuries were reported.

He said police later found explosives in the Tlhabane area, near Rustenburg, and believed they were the same as those used to blow up the ATM.
