Thousands of African migrants in South Africa have been forced to flee their homes into makeshift camps as a result of xenophobic attacks.
Two weeks ago mobs in Durban started to ransack and loot small businesses owned by fellow Africans in Durban.
It is estimated that six people have been killed and up to 100 are estimated to have been injured in the latest violence which broke out two weeks ago in Durban.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), a UN partner agency, is monitoring the situation closely and helping the victims.
Richard Ots, IOM’s Chief of Mission in South Africa tells Eleuteiro Guevane that this is not the first time that African migrants have been attacked by locals in South Africa.
