The other victims were in critical condition after the attack in the eastern town of Verulam, just north of the city of Durban, South Africa's state broadcaster SABC reported. There are usually few people at the mosque at this time.

Shaykh Isgaak Taliep, secretary general of the Muslim Judicial Council, called the attack on the mosque a "senseless crime" against three innocent individuals.

Reaction Unit SA said witnesses told them three men armed with knives and guns had attacked the mosque, attacking the victims, and setting the building alight.

"The South African Jewish Board of Deputies condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack in a mosque in KwaZulu-Natal", Krengel said.

"So the moment we make examples and we start using the aspect that this has happened in Pakistan and other places, we might be giving an impression that this is necessarily so", he said. They then threw a petrol bomb into the building. About 1.5 percent of the country's population is Muslim.

Prem Balram, spokesman for the Reaction Unit South Africa security company, said he arrived at the mosque to find two victims covered in blood lying in the forecourt of the mosque.

"We reiterate and emphasise the core Islamic teaching and principle of "respect for all human beings", Shaykh Isgaak Taliep, secretary general of the Muslim Judicial Council, said. Paramedics or doctors who can assist can report to the scene, ' RUSA said in an statement released today. In a separate incident, someone left a pig's snout in a mosque. "Speculation about the motive is quite unsafe at this point".

"A mosque is a religious institution, and South Africa's Constitution guarantees and protects the right to religious practices", Beukman said. "We want our communities to live in harmony, practising their religions without fear".
