CAPE TOWN - Two people have been apprehended for allegedly trying to set fire to a train carriage in Cape Town.

Metrorail says the men were trying to set fire to seats on Thursday night, on a train between Salt River and Woodstock.

The arrests come just days after a man was arrested for apparently vandalising a coach last Friday.
