Armed men opened fire on a group of people celebrating a birthday in a township in South Africa, killing eight and wounding three others, police say.


“The owner of the house was celebrating his birthday when two unknown gunmen entered the yard” on Sunday evening in the southern port city of Gqeberha, formerly Port Elizabeth, “and started shooting at the guests,” police said in a statement on Monday.


The incident occurred between 5:15pm and 5:30pm local time (15:15-15:30 GMT) at a house in Kwazakele, police. Two assailants were involved in the shooting, authorities said.

Shootings are common in South Africa, which has one of the world’s highest murder rates, fueled by gang violence and alcohol.


South Africa last year saw a string of shootings that killed nearly two dozen at separate bars in working-class suburbs in Johannesburg and in the eastern city of Pietermaritzburg.
