Police in running battles with protesters on N2 outside Durban

Police and security personnel spent a busy morning engaged in running battles with protesters on the R102 and N2 near Groutville‚ north of Durban‚ as demonstrations over electricity connections waged on.

On Tuesday both routes‚ major arterial connections to the northern regions of KZN‚ were closed to traffic as rioters erected burning barricades and stoned cars.

Police‚ augmented by personnel from IPSS Medical Rescue‚ moved along the route in an effort to disperse groups of protestors.

Protestors barricaded the roads with burning tyres and debris on Monday night.

This is a developing story.
