Johannesburg - Police continued to monitor Doornkop in Soweto on Friday after a foreign shopowner was set alight.
“There were no incidents reported overnight but police will continue to monitor the situation,” Lieutenant Kay Makhubela said.
On Thursday, a foreign shopowner was seriously injured after he had paraffin poured on him and was set alight, Makhubela said at the time.
Police officers who rushed to the scene rescued him. He was badly injured and taken to hospital.
A group of people who had been going around Doornkop telling foreigners to leave were allegedly behind the attack. No arrests had been made.
