Johannesburg - The situation was tense on Thursday during a stand-off between police and Eikenhof residents who were angry over the demolition of their shacks in the informal settlement.
A journalist was hurt as the residents turned on the media covering the stand-off.
The shacks had allegedly been erected illegally and when they were demolished it sent the residents into a frenzy.
They rallied behind the owners of the shacks, putting rocks on the road and allegedly stoning cars passing by.
This morning a traffic light lay damaged on the road, others had been smashed and debris was lying everywhere.
