Africa — A Portuguese
photographer was held up at
gunpoint early Wednesday.
   Antonio Simoes said he
woke around 4 a.m. and found
two men entering his room
at the Nutbush Boma Lodge
outside of Magaliesburg, 120
km northwest of Johannesburg.
   “One of the guys pointed
a hand gun at my head, and
then they took all my gear
— cameras, lenses, laptop,”
said Simoes, who works for
the Portuguese daily O Jogo.
“Then they told me to lie on
the bed and they covered me
with a blanket, pressed the gun
against my head and told me
to sleep.                                      Fans raise scarves and wave flags during the opening concert for the 2010 World Cup at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg June 10, 2010.

   The three cameras and gear
the thieves stole was worth
about 30,000 euros ($37,535).
They also took 3,500 euros
($4,380) in cash as well as the
photographer’s passport and a
pair of jeans.
   Simoes said he stayed in
bed for a while after being
robbed, too scared to move
and worrying about what was
happening in the other rooms.
