Police forensic teams in South Africa are investigating the deaths of 22 young people at a nightclub and bar in the southern coastal town of East London. “It’s difficult to believe it’s a stampede as there are no visible open wounds to those dead,” he said. South African Police Force (SAPS) and forensics experts work at the scene at the Enyobeni Tavern in East London, South Africa.

Cele said he had been told that the tavern was known for underage drinking and told local parents they needed to take responsibility for their children.
