South Africa: Foreign journalists robbed
Yawn – another crime story from South Africa. Wonder how many I’m going to end up posting during the SWC?
Johannesburg – Members of the Portuguese media contingent covering the 2010 Soccer World Cup tournament were robbed at gunpoint, police sources confirmed to Beeld on Wednesday morning.
Portugal, a favourite to win the Cup, beat Mozambique 3-0 in a friendly in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
The journalists were overpowered at their 4-star lodge on the West Rand, about 60km from Fourways, at about 04:30.
