JOHANNESBURG – The government has revised the total number of people killed in KwaZulu-Natal’s devastating floods down to 435.

Police Minister Bheki Cele said this followed the results of autopsies on other corpses found during search and rescue operations with different causes of death.

Four turned out to be murder victims with gunshot wounds while nine others died of natural causes.

The government’s justice, crime and security prevention cluster briefed journalists on the status of its interventions in the province.

The cluster said an unconfirmed number of people remained missing.
