Foreign shops in an informal settlement near Natalspruit in eastern Johannesburg, were looted on Sunday following protest over the deaths of two South Africans.

The police confirmed the incident, saying a Pakistani national shot and killed a woman and a child following a brawl.

“The killing angered the local residents who retaliated by chasing foreigners away and looted their shops,” they said.

A witness said the situation was tensed, making the police to send reinforcements to the area.

He said the police used rubber bullets to disperse angry crowds.

Meanwhile, an unconfirmed report said the foreign nationals were collecting illegal fire arms that they could protect themselves from criminals.

The incident was reminiscent of April’s attacks, which left several people dead and thousands displaced.
