Pretoria - Chaos erupted at the Burmese Embassy in Pretoria on Friday, after a crowd of protesters affiliated to the #SA4Rohingya campaign gathered to picket against the plight of Rohingya refugees who have fled Myanmar.
As different speeches were given, outside the embassy, some people within the protesters started shaking the perimeter fence and throwing stones and garbage into the diplomatic mission's premises.
Members of the South African Police Service, with the Tshwane Metro Police, fired stun grenades as they forced the multitude of protesters to disperse from the embassy.
Anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee condemned the behaviour of the unruly protesters and said the chaos started when the objects were hurled into the embassy.
"A section of the crowd started hurling objects at the embassy, injuring two people. Police also used teargas. Some protesters were out of line and their behaviour is unacceptable," said Abramjee.
