Police are investigating the alleged abuse of children at an orphanage in Woodstock, Cape Town.
Seventeen children were removed from the Al Noor Child and Youth Care Centre following a number of complaints of sexual and physical abuse at the facility.
Criminal cases have been opened against the alleged abusers. The children will be placed in an alternative place at a later stage, as a longer-term solution.
Officials have suspended the centre’s registration, pending the results of the investigation.
The provincial Social Development Department’s Esther Lewis said: “The children have been placed at other child care and youth centres and are receiving the necessary social support, including assessment and counselling.”
