Anti-foreigners protest held in Johannesburg


Anti-immigrant protesters were back on the streets of Johannesburg on Thursday chanting slogans requesting foreign nationals to leave their country.

Some protesters pelted stones and bottle bombs at foreigners’ houses and stores forcing tightened police patrols in several areas, while in some sections police carrying loaded guns were dispatched.

Since mid-February, Johannesburg and Pretoria have witnessed a string of arson and looting incidents targeting residential buildings and stores of foreign nationals and immigrants.
