At least one person was killed and five others are currently receiving treatment at the hospital after a xenophobic march in South Africa turned violent on Sunday.

KanyiDaily had reported that protest broke out on Sunday afternoon when hostel residents across the commercial hub of Johannesburg took to the streets to demand immediate deportation of foreigners, while chanting “foreigners must go back to where they came from”.

During the protest, security operatives clashed with the protesters who were trying to loot some shops in the Central Business District of Johannesburg.

The police confirmed that one person had been killed and five others hospitalised. The deceased was reportedly stabbed to death.

It was not immediately clear whether the deceased was a South African or a foreigner. The identities of those injured had also not been fully learnt as of Sunday evening.

The police said they intervened early enough to prevent South African xenophobic marchers and foreigners from clashing at the heart of Johannesburg.
