Five people have been killed and six hospitalised after shooters took hostages at the International Pentecostal Holiness Church in Zuurbekom, South Africa on Saturday

South African Police Service said they had rescued men, women and children, and arrested at least 40 people. Officers also added they are investigating the possibility the attack may have been motivated by an internal feud between conflicting parties of the church.
