South Africa: Man free after killing robbers: "A 46-year-old man who shot dead two robbers was released after appearing in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court on Monday, police said. 'He will at this stage not face prosecution,' said spokesperson Superintendent Andy Pieke. ... The man said that he was walking home at about 21:45 on Sunday when three men approached him, threatened him with a firearm and stole his cellphone and cash. 'The man allegedly went to his house and fetched his firearm,' Pieke said. The man returned to the area where he had been robbed and the same three men apparently tried to rob him again. He fired several shots at them, killing two of the men. The third man ran away."
