Many have fled their homes. The Isipingo police station continues to be inundated with the displaced. A temporary shelter has now been set up and on Thursday more than 200 foreigners were moved to the secure camp.

The South African Refugee Council has called for government intervention to stop the growing attacks on foreign nationals. Attacks on foreigners were again reported overnight in areas south of Durban. Many continue to flee their homes. There are growing fears that the attacks on foreigners may have turned deadly. The Congolese national kidnapped on Wednesday has not been found and two Somalis attacked at one of the stores are also missing. Foreign national Daniel Dunia says he fears that the missing men may no longer be alive because of the violence that has escalated. More attacks and looting were reported overnight, this time at Malukazi near Umlazi. Many have fled their homes. The Isipingo police station continues to be inundated with the displaced. A temporary shelter has now been set up and on Thursday more than 200 foreigners were moved to the secure camp. Non- Governmental Organisations including The Red Cross are on site to assist. Organisations representing foreign nationals say reintegration efforts need to be fast-tracked because the refugee camp is a temporary measure. Meanwhile police continue to monitor the hotspots.
