South Africa Plunged Into Violence As Protests Escalate Over Jailing Of Jacob Zuma

Six people have been killed and 219 arrested amid an escalation of rioting in Johannesburg, which broke out after the imprisonment of South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma.

Shops and businesses have been looted and vandalised and burning vehicles and debris left across roads.

The violence was triggered last week when Zuma began serving a 15-month sentence for contempt of court.
