It’s been awhile since I posted news from the Rainbow Nation, but here is a short one about an attack by Somali refugees on a United Nations office in Cape Town. Funny how these type of stories never make the mainstream media.
From All Africa:
Belive — Hundreds of Somali people have stormed an office stationed by UN in South Africa’s Cape Town.
Moqtar Mohammed Mohamoud, a Somali refugee in Cape Town, told Shabelle that Somalis, who stormed the UN office, were trying to get ID cards to stay in that country peacefully. [you gotta wonder how stormed the office and peacefully go together!—ed]
Shortly after the incident, a large number of South African policemen have reached the office starting to use tear gas and big sticks to disperse the crowd of Somali refugees inside and around the office.
