S Africa's youth caught in gang crossfire

At least seven children killed this year as drug gangs battle for territory in Cape Town.

    The South African city of Capetown may be known as a tourist hub, but it also has a reputation for gang violence.

    So far this year, at least seven children have been killed and many others wounded in the crossfire as drug gangs battle for territory.
