Still no arrests in Verulam mosque attack incident

Several weeks since the deadly attack on a mosque in Ottowa, near Verulam and those responsible remain at large.

One man died and two others were injured in the incident, which was followed by a similar attack in Malmesbury.

The second is this type of attempted violence or violence in the Verulam case is very rare in South Africa in a number of aspects. Throat slitting is a foreign consent.

The possibility that these incidents may be linked is most concerning because then the question is what potential political or ideological message is behind them.

Davies says there are signs that the cases are being looked at with urgency.
