Johannesburg - An armed gang stole money and a camera from four Chinese journalists in South Africa to cover the World Cup, Chinese state media reported on Thursday.

Several men attacked the journalists when their car stopped on the side of the road as they returned to Johannesburg after an interview, the reports said.

The thieves made off with a small amount of cash and a camera worth about $1 500 (R11 600), the Beijing News said.
