A Chinese young man was killed Sunday in South Africa by a group of robbers who broke into his pub, said the Chinese General Consulate in Johannesburg Monday.
Chen Ming, 26, from east China's Fujian province, died of excessive bleeding after being stabbed in the back by the robbers, said Chinese Consul Xu Defu.
The five-member gang broke into Chen's pub, some 50 km south of Johannesburg, around 7:00 p.m. (1700 GMT) Sunday, demanding money from the till. They tied all the pub attendants up with ropes.
The robbers fled the scene shortly after the attack.
A total of 15 Chinese have been killed in robbery attacks in South Africa so far this year, three of them slain in September alone.
The Chinese General Consulate in Johannesburg reminded the Chinese community in South Africa to take precautionary measures to protect their lives and property.
