Initially it was believed that all three victims had been killed. "Verulam police are investigating three counts of attempted murder and arson", police spokeswoman Nqobile Gwala said in a statement.

The private emergency service was the first on the scene at the Imam Hussain mosque in Verulam. Paramedics were called to the scene to attend to the critically injured men.

The remaining two victims are still in a critical condition.

A device was thrown into the Mosque by the suspects. The fire department is also on scene.

He said a third victim had been attacked inside the building, which was then set alight, and had jumped out of a window.

Man Utd Draw With West Ham To Secure Second Spot
When asked about injuries, Mourinho said: " They all work well, even in weeks that hand in bad performances or bad results ". As always, there are so many versions of the truth and what Jose Mourinho says in public is not what he thinks in private.

It is believed that the attackers are three Egyptian nationals, who allegedly slit the throats of the three people, including the imam of the mosque.

While he can not confirm this, the Director of Reaction Unit SA Prem Balram says a group of witnesses believe the incident may have been a terrorist attack. Nothing was taken from the mosque or from the victims, that's why we're saying it doesn't look like a robbery.

South Africa has a history of relative religious tolerance.

Only around three percent of South Africa's population is estimated to practice Islam, and the majority of the country's Muslims live in the capital of Cape Town.

The attack came shortly ahead of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which begins around May 16.
