CAPE TOWN - Seven people, including a murder suspect, have been arrested as part of the police's Operation Lockdown in Port Elizabeth.

One of the people in custody is a 38-year-old man who was wanted in connection with a 2015 murder in Gelvandale.
The police's Sandra Janse van Rensburg says four other suspects were arrested for drug possession.
