Police in Cape Town, South Africa, arrested two men Feb. 13 for the murders of nine men at the Sizzlers gay massage parlor.

News reports had linked the Jan. 20 massacre to gangs and drug deals, but police said they now believe the motive was robbery.

The victims were tied up, shot, and had their throats slit. Six died on the spot and three died later in hospitals. One man survived. He has been released from the hospital, after having two bullets removed from his head, and is staying at a safe house.

Police said both of the arrestees have confessed.
