United Nations orders South Africa to Stop Xenophobic Violence
« on: September 07, 2018, 05:50:23 AM »

The U.N. refugee agency is urging the South African authorities to get to grips with violence targeting foreigners before it gets completely out of control.

UNHCR says it is alarmed by the xenophobic fever, which is taking hold of large portions of South African society. It says even refugees and asylum seekers, who are particularly vulnerable, have become targets of violent anti-foreigner sentiment.

Four people reportedly were killed in the Soweto area of Johannesburg by angry protesters last week, while mobs looted and destroyed property belonging to foreign nationals. The UNHCR says it is worried these tense standoffs between South Africans and foreigners is spreading to Kwazulu Natal and Western Cape Provinces.

UNHCR spokesman Charlie Yaxley told VOA similar attacks occurred in 2015, but relations between South African nationals and foreigners since then, by-in-large, have been peaceful.
