Foreign-owned shops in South Africa looted

Analysts suggest violence is a result of poor locals' frustration with inequality and migrants taking jobs.

    Dozens of people have been arrested in South Africa following the rioting and looting of foreign-owned shops.

    Some analysts say the recent violence is a result of poor South Africans being frustrated with the government and taking it out on foreigners who seem to be doing better than they are.
