"The motive of the attack on the three men is unknown at this stage", Capt. Nqobile Gwala with police in KwaZulu-Natal province told The Associated Press in an email.

Paul Herbst of IPSS Medical Rescue said, "Unconfirmed reports suggests that three men, reportedly of Egyptian descent, attacked members of the mosque before setting fire to the building".

Witnesses at the scene claimed the men were Egyptian, and drove away in a Hyundai vehicle. The other two men were also stabbed - one was stabbed in the abdomen and the other in the groin of his left leg.

Three people are said to be in a critical condition after their throats were slit at a mosque in Verulam, Kwazulu - Natal on Thursday afternoon. "Paramedics or doctors who can assist can report to the scene", Rusa said in an earlier statement. Last year, a mosque in Cape Town was covered in pig's blood in what officials claimed was an Islamophobic attack. A section of the mosque was set ablaze and smoke was billowing from the side of the building, Balram said.
