Emmanuel Sithole, a Mozambique national who ran a shop in the Johannesburg township of Alexandra, lies on the ground bleeding after being attacked by a group of local men who stabbed and beat him. James Oatway called an ambulance and waited with him but Emmanuel later died of his wounds. Sithole was the seventh person to do die in an upsurge of anti-immigrant violence across South Africa.<br />
The violence follows controversial comments made by Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini in which he said that foreigners were taking South Africans' jobs and should 'pack their belongings and go back to their countries.'
