An unidentified woman looks out of her window as police, unseen, investigate the crime scene where Josef Hector was shot dead in front of her house in the township of Manenberg on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013. Education officials in a province in South Africa closed 16 schools, affecting 12,000 students, Thursday in an impoverished area near Cape Town because of a spike in gang violence that has left teachers too afraid to go to work. Underscoring the level of violence, one man who was identified by fellow members as belonging to a gang called the Americans was shot dead Thursday in an area in Manenberg where many children play.
