    In the eastern province of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, millions have been forced to build makeshift shack homes to live in.

    A rights group in the province says hundreds of people are being thrown out of their shacks, adding that such actions by the city are illegal in the absence of a court order and the provision of adequate alternative homes.
