Foreign-owned shops in Soweto were under siege on Wednesday, August 14th as residents went on a looting spree.
Areas that have been affected so far include; Zola, Emdeni, Moletsane, White City, Zondi and Rockville. The assault on foreigners is reminiscent of a wave of xenophobic attacks that were unleashed in Soweto a year ago.
Police spokesman Capt Kay Makhubele confirmed that residents from a number of townships had been looting foreign-owned stores since Wednesday evening. “At the moment it is not clear what started this. We are yet to determine the wide scale of the looting, but we have members on the ground monitoring the situation,” he said.
Residents in White City claimed the looting was the community’s way of showing its anger at the attack on police officers in Johannesburg’s CBD more than two weeks ago.
Last week, law-enforcement personnel reclaimed control of the Johannesburg CBD through the “Okae Molao” operation, which saw seven assault rifles, three pistols and millions of rands worth of counterfeit goods being confiscated in the inner city and hundreds of undocumented foreigners were also arrested.
According to a resident of Soweto identified as Tshepo Lehohla, “how can people from out of this country attack our police officers? Police in other countries would not tolerate that. People are angry because of that,” he said.
Another resident said the looting was bound to happen. Moeketsi Tladi said he was not surprised at what was happening in his area. “People have been upset with what happened. It was only a matter of time,” he said.
A man went on a knife rampage in Sydney, Australia, screaming “Allahu Akbar” and he ended up getting at least one person injured before he was pinned down by firefighters.
The man, armed with a foot-long knife allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” and “shoot me” during the incident.
Witnesses, including firefighters armed with axes, chased the man, who was covered in blood, through the city’s business district before pinning him to the ground. People nearby helped pin the man to the floor using a chair from a nearby cafe and a milk crate.
He was then swiftly taken into custody by police.
The injured woman was immediately rushed to the hospital.
People have been urged to avoid the area around King and Clarence Streets at the heart of the central business district (CBD) while police were carrying out investigations.
The alleged attack took place at around 2pm local time, near Wynard Station just as people were finishing their lunch breaks.
Marco, who was working at Batch Cafe, said he saw a man in his 20s and he had a blade that was about a foot long.
He said: “He was trying to smash a driver side window of a random car with the knife. He was unsuccessful. People were chasing him by that stage. There was fireys [firefighters] chasing him with axes and he went around the corner.”
A witness from a nearby Subway said: “We saw the person with a knife over there bleeding. The cops are here and they blocked the road right now, so we can’t go outside. They said: ‘It’s a crime scene, you can’t come out’.”
According to Metro UK, an Uber driver said: “I was next to a fire truck in York Street and he jumped on the bonnet of my car. He crashed across the bonnet and had a knife in his hand. There was blood on his shirt.”
According to 7News a witness who chased him said: “Do you know how many people you just stabbed, you dog? You just stabbed a chick, mate, in broad daylight.”
The Sydney Morning Herald said several people had reportedly been stabbed, although there was no confirmation from officials.
Four people are dead and two others injured after a man “full of anger” went on a two-hour stabbing rampage in a series of random attacks in Los Angeles.
The man, 33, killed two men at the apartment complex where he lives in Garden Grove before going on to kill a Subway worker and a security guard at a branch of 7-Eleven.
One of his victims was stabbed in the back at a petrol station as he filled his vehicle and was left with his nose almost severed completely off his face.
During the attacks, the man robbed several businesses across the area, including a bakery and an insurance business.
Police Lieutenant Carl Whitney said that the attacker was Hispanic and all his victims were Hispanic too. He said the motives were “robbery, hate and homicide”.
He said: “We know this guy was full of anger and he harmed a lot of people tonight.”
It is believed there had been some kind of confrontation at the attacker’s apartment building that led to one person being stabbed in their flat and dying at hospital and another being found dead on the balcony.
The suspect’s silver Mercedes was tracked to the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store in Santa Ana, where a security guard was disarmed and stabbed to death, Mr Whitney said.
The owner of the bakery that was attacked said: “He went directly to the register and tried to open the register… he showed me a gun.”
The attacker took all the money and fled, the woman revealed.
She added: “I think I was very lucky because he thought I was a customer, not the owner.”
The mass killing comes just days after 31 people were killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
