Dozens arrested after looting and violence in South Africa

South African police are downplaying the possibility that xenophobia is behind a wave of looting and protests in Pretoria and Johannesburg after shops owned by foreigners were targeted. Also, despite a back-to-school campaign in Anglophone regions in Cameroon, few pupils have ventured back to classrooms after years of separatist violence. And at least 12 people have been arrested in Ivory Coast after fans who didn’t believe DJ Arafat’s death opened his coffin.
