South Africa arrests 100 migrants at UN building
Written by Fred on October 31, 2019
South African police have arrested around 100 foreigners during an operation to evict refugees and asylum seekers from a UN building in Cape Town.
The police, who used water canon, were carrying out a court order to remove about 300 people who had occupied the building for the past three weeks in a grievance over a wave of deadly xenophobic attacks.
The group, mostly from other African countries, demanded that the UN repatriate them or send them to a third country.
South Africa, as the continent’s most developed economy, is a magnet to migrants.
