A pregnant woman has been shot dead while she was giving birth in South Africa. 


Shaida Nathan, 32, a mother-of-three, was in the midst of delivering her fourth child in a back-garden shack on the outskirts of Cape Town around 6am Sunday when the attack happened.


Witnesses say two men ran into the garden and opened fire on the shack, leaving Shaida wounded.


Medics were called but were unable to save the mother or her unborn child.


Police say one of the two men who were with Shaida at the time, believed to be her two older sons, was the intended target of the attack.


Both of the men were also wounded and taken to hospital. Their current condition is unclear. 


Officers say it is also unclear if the shooting was gang related, but it happened in a notorious high-crime area.



One 68-year-old resident, who did not want to be named, told IOL: 'Shaida was a mother of three children.


'One child is in foster care, the other two were with her, but I don't know where they are now.'
