Shops in central Durban were closed as a knobkierrie-wielding mob assaulted foreign nationals and looted their shops in Durban.
Metro police rushed around to make sure shops were properly closed as some foreigners fled without closing them properly.
Taxis had their windows smashed as foreign nationals threw rocks and stones from a block of flats on West Street, in central Durban.
Police had their hands full trying to calm down an angry mob of locals who had stones and rocks thrown at them.
