South Africa is 'close to a war zone' with 57 murders a DAY, says police minister

South Africa's already high murder rate has increased by about seven per cent, prompting the country's police minister to compare the situation to a 'war zone.'

More than 20,300 people - some 57 every day - have been killed across the country in just 12 months, official statistics showed Tuesday.

Many murders were linked to gang violence in Western Cape province, whose capital is Cape Town.
