Updated: 14:30 14-06-2018

An attack at a Malmesbury mosque has stunned a local community.

Three people, including the attacker, died.

Two worshippers were killed early on Thursday morning. The assailant was shot dead by police.

Cars line up outside the mosque and at a house of one of the victims, who was stabbed to death.

The entrance to the place of worship has been cordoned off as police investigate.

The motive is unknown at this stage.

The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) has condemned the incident.

Representatives of the MJC are currently at the residence of the deceased.

Imraan Mukaddam spoke to CapeTalk following the incident. He is a relative of one of the worshippers who was killed.

“One of the people spending time in the mosque went berserk and something happened. The deceased’s throat was slit… that’s as much as I can say now.”

This attack comes a month after a separate incident on a mosque in Verulam, KwaZulu-Natal. Three unknown men stormed the place of worship, killing one person and injuring two others.

Investigations have been underway since the attack on the Imam Husain Mosque.
