16 April 2015 Last updated at 15:10 BST

Violence against foreigners in South Africa is spreading as several countries, including Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi, arrange to repatriate their citizens.

The violence has been triggered by South Africans who perceive foreigners to be taking jobs that they feel they should have.

Thousands of people are marching in Durban to protest against the violence.

Milton Nkosi reports from Johannesburg.
