Charles Visits Shanty Town

Prince Charles, continuing his tour of southern Africa, has been to some of South Africa's poorest urban areas -- the shanty towns behind Table Mountain, near Cape Town.

He toured several community projects in Nyanga and Langa townships.

He went to Nyanga police station, which correspondents say is being held up as an example of how rampant crime can be reduced with the involvement of the local community.

He was briefed on how the project operates before officially opening a new trauma unit where rape and child abuse victims will be treated.
