South Africa's elite police unit has raided the controversial Gupta business family's home, as pressure increases on President Jacob Zuma to resign.

Three arrests have been made, including one Gupta brother, local media report.

Police say two other people are expected to hand themselves in.

It comes as Mr Zuma's own party gave him until the end of the day to stand down, or face a no-confidence vote.

His links to the Guptas are one of the reasons he is being forced to resign.

The family has been accused using their close friendship with Mr Zuma to wield enormous political influence. The Guptas and Mr Zuma all deny the allegations.
