Fifth arrest over toddler killings

Hundreds took to the streets of a Johannesburg township as news broke that a fifth suspect in the rape and murder of two toddlers had been arrested. The mutilated bodies of the two girls aged three and two were found in a public toilet in Diepsloot township on October 15th. The killings have shocked a nation with one of the world's highest rates of violent and sexual crime. The protesters said they wanted police to hand the latest suspect over. Supporters of the ruling ANC and of the opposition EFF were at the demonstration despite tensions between them. President Jacob Zuma's condemned the killings which he said did not belong in South Africa. Four other suspects appeared in court on Friday. The hearing was postponed to October 24th so the fifth can appear alongside them.
