More cops to deal with aliens attacks

Additional experienced police officers trained to deal with high-risk situations will be deployed in Gauteng to counter the wave of xenophobic attacks.

Senior police management met Gauteng Police Commissioner Perumal Naidoo and his management team yesterday to assess the situation.

"Decisive operations will be launched in order to counter this wave of unacceptable violence. Strong action will be taken against perpetrators and any person or group convening meetings with the intention of inciting violence," said police spokesman Director Sally de Beer. - Kingdom Mabuza
