Foreign nationals living in Johannesburg are being attacked and their businesses looted.

The center of Johannesburg is currently a surreal sight. Cars have been torched, businesses broken into and ransacked, foreign nationals are being violently attacked and police are admittedly struggling to maintain order.

Just a week after xenophobic attacks erupted in Pretoria and two months after Nigerians were being attacked in Hillbrow, the country is experiencing yet another spate of xenophobic attacks which began yesterday.

Two people have been confirmed dead, including a woman who was shot at close range. A hundred others have been arrested thus far.

The reasons for the xenophobic attacks echo the pervasive anti-immigrant sentiment around the world.
