South Africa Says Attacks on Foreigners Have Been Halted

Updated on

A series of attacks against foreigners in South Africa has ended and security forces will ensure there is no recurrence, the government said.

“The violence has stopped,” Jeff Radebe, a minister in the presidency, told reporters in Pretoria on Tuesday. “Peace and calm has returned in the communities that were affected by violent attacks. Our government is in charge. We are reaching out to reassure the global community that South Africa is open and stable for business.”
