    Somalis living in and around the South African city of Cape Town say they have become the victims of a spike in deadly robberies. Community leaders claim 15 people have been murdered in the past two months.
      
    Many of the Somalis had recently moved to South Africa to escape the civil war at home. But after some became successful business owners, discriminatory violence was stepped up against the minority group.
