A riot broke out when a group of foreign nationals living in South Africa marched toward the foreign ministry in the capital Pretoria to express concerns about anti-foreigner violence in the country. The police had to use rubber bullets and stun grenades to disperse crowds.
President Jacob Zuma has condemned the violence. He said: “Many citizens of other countries living in South Africa are law abiding and contribute to the economy of the country positively. It is wrong to brandish all non-nationals as drug dealers or human traffickers.”
