Pretoria � National Police Acting Commissioner Lieutenant General Khomotso Phahlane has thanked operational members who saved the 10 hostages in Nyanga in Cape Town.

Police on Monday managed to free 10 hostages after a day-long stand-off following an attempted armed robbery at Nyanga Junction Shopping Centre on the Cape Flats.

Various specialised police units attended the scene, including SAPS hostage negotiators.

At least one person, a suspect, was wounded by security personnel during the initial attempted armed robbery. The 10 were later released by the robbers.

General Phahlane thanked the SAPS operational members for risking their lives, as well as members of the community for their support and prayers during the nail-biting police operation.

We again assure those that we serve, that all precautions were taken to ensure the safe release of the hostages � that was our primary objective and we are thankful to our skilled and dedicated members that this was achieved, said General Phahlane.
