South Africa’s president said he was “deeply upset” by the abuse of foreign nationals working in the country. This is a particular problem in the town of Alexandra, which was at the center of xenophobic riots in 2008. Some migrants there have told the BBC that they are now living in fear.

“When they first came here, there were seven of them and they let us all lie down and took the machines, hair dryers and sprays, we had no choice but to let them have to take it because they had guns.”
