Two suspects were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly killing and robbing a Chinese female national in Kokstad, South Africa, according to Xinhua.

The 24-year-old Chinese shopkeeper was robbed and stabbed by three men while she was at work in Ibisi, Kokstad on June 17.

The men fled with a computer monitor, cigarettes and airplane vouchers.

After a two-day manhunt by police, two of the three men, aged 21 and 22, were arrested on Tuesday. The third suspect remains at large, local police said.

This is the fifth Chinese national that has been killed in KwaZulu-Natal this year. There are about 300,000 Chinese nationals living in South Africa, a country which has the largest Chinese population in Africa.
