CAPE TOWN, South Africa – Cape Town police say a 26-year-old man faces murder charges in the weekend death of a British tourist, a case that has focused international attention on crime in South Africa.
Western Cape police spokesman Captain Frederick van Wyk said Wednesday the man, who has been held since Tuesday for questioning, will be taken to court Thursday and also faces hijacking charges.
Van Wyk says another suspect is being sought.
Gunmen forced Anni Dewani's husband and a driver from their vehicle Saturday night as they drove through an impoverished area of Cape Town. Her body was found the next morning.
The Dewanis, married for two weeks, were honeymooning in South Africa. Top police and other government officials had publicly pledged to quickly find the killers.
