Police in Cape Town, South Africa, announced Thursday that they had arrested two men in connection with an attack at a gay massage parlor that left nine men dead, Agence France-Presse reports. The suspects, ages 26 and 42, confessed to the crime and are expected to appear in court on Monday.
Press reports have speculated that the January 20 attack was related to either gang activity or homophobia, but police say they believe the real motive was robbery. Ten men at the massage parlor were tied up. Some of them had their throats slit, and then they were shot in the head. Six bodies were found at the scene, and three of four wounded men later died later at a hospital. The sole survivor of the attack is under police protection.
