Grenades at demolition protest

Cape Times

Two city law enforcement officers were injured, roads were closed, vehicles stoned and journalists attacked as Elsies River residents protested against the demolition of a shack yesterday.

About 500 residents of Clarke Estate blockaded 25th Street with burning tyres and stones after law enforcement officers demolished the shack next to the council-owned Rooiberg Cape flats.
