Anti-immigrant violence spreads in South Africa

Foreign nationals queue for food at a temporary refugee camp, east of Johannesburg, South Africa. A total of seven people have died in attacks on immigrants in South Africa in the past week bringing the South African president to postpone a key ceremony, his office said. The anti-immigrant violence has been in specific areas of Durban and Johannesburg. Six people died in attacks in the coastal city of Durban, where looters broke into shops owned by immigrants, police said. The violence has since subsided.
