We recently visited Durban whilst on holiday in South Africa. We were robbed of our handbags at knife point by 2 young black men. Unfortunately like most women our lives were in our handbags. When you walk out please be aware of what's around you and only take necessities with you, if you have pockets ladies, don't take your handbag. These men came up behind us and cut the straps of our bags with very sharp knives then pulled the bags from our shoulders. We lost a lot of personal things but luckily not our passports, try not to carry them with you. There were lots of police attended to us but nothing came of it. This really spoilt our holiday. Please just take extra care, these kind of people are evil.
