Durban, Kwazulu-Natal: South Africa: Xenaphobia resurfaces: one dead, two injured

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. News 24 (Secular; South African: Article by DPA) 06/01/2009)

Durban's Mercury: is reporting: that one man jumped from a building, dying, and two were seriously injured, by a mob, who took it upon themselves to attack the foreigners.

Kwazulu-Natal: an ANC stronghold: has repeatedly been the scene of violence between ANC supporters, and IFP supporters, with house burnings, and violence. It is a real fear, that this will resurface with elections. A picture of the armed mob: assaulting the building, appeared in the Mercury. Refugee camps: to house foreigners: after dozens of deaths: have since, largely been closed: with residents: deported, or forced to "integrate".

Images: of a foreigner: burning, having been set alight: are still fresh in the global consciousness. Violence: over political beliefs is common in South Africa; and these beliefs: are often very influenced by tribal views.
