Johannesburg (AP) -- South African authorities are investigating whether any workers at Johannesburg's main international airport have helped robbers who follow arriving travelers to their homes before mugging them.

The management of O.R. Tambo International Airport said Tuesday that it wants to identify alleged "airport spotters" who provide information about potential victims to waiting criminals.
