    Durban - Immigrants and foreign African nationals in South Africa say the government has not done enough to reintegrate them into communities after becoming targets of xenophobic violence.

    Many moved to refugee camps due to the attacks and some are still too afraid to go back to their homes.

    Shop owners in Durban, in KwaZulu-Natal province, say not enough is being done to help them.
