Nine people were killed, including two police officers, in a cash-in-transit heist in Nongoma, KwaZulu-Natal, on Friday night, police spokesperson Brigadier Vish Naidu said on Saturday.

"During a brazen attack on a cash-in-transit vehicle last night two of our police officers lost their lives, seven suspects were killed and a woman was wounded," said Naidu.

The police responded quickly but there was a shootout between them and the robbers. 

"Seven suspects, a member from CI and the STF member were killed during the skirmish. A female member who was shot in the leg is currently receiving medical treatment."

So far, four AK-47 assault rifles have been recovered. The BMW driven by the suspects was reportedly used during other robberies, including one recently at a Nongoma Shell garage.
