MORE than 5000 people have marched in Durban, South Africa, against attacks on foreigners living in the country.
The attacks have forced many foreigners to abandon their homes and businesses, and fear has spread across the country.
Marchers in Durban held placards that read "You gave us peace" followed by former African leaders' names.
At least six people have been killed in the last two weeks in Durban in attacks targeting shops and homes owned by Somalis, Ethiopians, Malawians and other immigrants.
In the capital Johannesburg, police had to break up a crowd of anti-immigrant protesters.
It was reported some foreigners felt so threatened they sought refuge in camps and a police station.
