Four reporters from China were robbed of their cameras as well as cash on a street in Johannesburg in South Africa on June 9, Beijing News reported.

The four, sent by an Anhui media group for World Cup coverage, encountered the robbers on their way to do interviews in Johannesburg. As they pulled up in their car along a street, the robbers came up and intimidated them into opening the window and door, and took their money and a camera worth 10,000 yuan before fleeing.

None of the reporters was hurt, according to the report.

The incident is among a number of worrying concerns about the South African government's ability of curbing crimes as many fans have already decided to quit their tour in the country during the World Cup.
