JOHANNESBURG - There have been at least two attempted business robberies in Johannesburg this morning, with the first one happening at OR Tambo International Airport, where it's understood security guards were injured.

Police are now on the scene of the armed cash-in-transit heist at the airport.

While details are not yet clear, it's understood gunman targeted a security van in the cargo area of the airport just before 6am this morning.

Three security guards have been rushed to hospital and police are now searching for the gang, which made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The police's Tsekiso Mofokeng says, "The incident happened just inside the yard of the airport. It's not where people are boarding, it's where good are being transported. The security van was from the airport."

Police have also confirmed an ATM has been bombed at the Booysens Supermarket in Booysens Park.

Six suspects ambushed staff as they opened the store this morning and held them at gun point.

It's understood explosives were then placed at the ATM inside the shop and the machine was blown up.

Mofokeng explains, "They took an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene in a white BMW."
