atmNews24 reports that two SBV security guards were shot dead on Friday during a cash-in-transit robbery in Tsolo, Eastern Cape.  

A police spokesperson said the guards were loading money at an ATM machine near a supermarket when a group of armed men pounced on them.  The guards were fatally wounded and the suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a hijacked van.  No arrests had been made as of Friday evening.  Meanwhile, police officials on Friday said the implementation of the SA Police Service's nationwide stabilisation programme to reduce crime was paying off as the incidents of cash-in-transit robberies reduced significantly by 61% in June, compared to May, and dozens of alleged robbers have been arrested.
