    Background: The youngest-known victim of last week's violence in the coloured townships around Cape Town, South Africa, was buried on Monday (23 June). She was a 17-month-old baby girl, Belinda Moore.

    SYNOPSIS: Belinda was at home asleep in bed when a bullet passed through the corrugated iron wall and hit her in the head. Her other was in the room with her. Belinda's father carried her to a police van parked nearby, and asked for help. The police would not drive him to hospital, but someone else did. Belinda died there.

    Belinda was the Moore's only surviving child. It has not been proved how the shot was fired, but the police are investigating. Mrs Moore said it came from the police van. Another witness said there was just one shot. There had been no rioting outside the house.

    The South African government has said 30 people died in the three days of rioting. Newspaper checks with hospitals put the figure at over 40. The victims include a schoolgirl of 14, and the young mother of three small children.
