South Africa migrants fear violence

Immigrants say they have been threatened with violence once World Cup is over.

    Two years ago, South Africa was hit by a series of riots and xenophobic attacks targeting migrants from neighbouring African countries.

    Now, with three weeks to the opening match of the football World Cup, many immigrants are living in fear.

    They say they have been threatened with violence once the tournament is over.
