South Africa violence: Army deployment in Cape Town extended

The army deployment was meant to last three months but has been extended to next March.

The South African army has been ordered to stay for an extra three months in parts of Cape Town suffering gang violence.

Troops have backed police in an area notorious for drug gangs since last month.

But people living there say the military’s presence has not really helped.
