Foreign-owned shops close in Joburg amid fears of attacks



 
According to reports by SA media, a number of shops owned by foreigners have closed their shops in the Johannesburg CBD area after allegedly receiving threats from a mob. The group, who are said to be Zulu boys, threatened to attack any shops that remained open. They recently looted many shops in Durban and killed about 10 foreign immigrants, including Nigerians. They burnt some people inside their shops.

An eNCA reporter Nickolaus Baeur was in one of the streets this morning called Lilian Ngoyi Street and shop owners told him they feared for their safety.
