about 100 people have ransacked foreign-owned stores in Johannesburg in the latest wave of violence rocking the country. Doors and windows were smashed overnight, and food and other goods strewn on the floor in stores believed to belong to illegal immigrants. Similar incidents have taken place in Pretoria over the past few weeks. However, authorities have been reluctant to characterize the attacks as xenophobic in nature. Anti-immigrant violence has flared up sporadically in South Africa against a background of near-record unemployment. Foreigners are often accused of being behind criminal activity and taking jobs away from locals.
