The armed protesters are demanding the immediate departure of foreigners.
Our earlier report quoted Sowetan Live, a South African newspaper, saying that the protesters, who carried various types of weapons, are waiting to be addressed by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, a notable politician and Zulu tribe leader.
Meanwhile, at least two persons have been confirmed injured in the renewed xenophobic attacks.
The attacks, according to sources, began few hours ago.
It was gathered the protests, which led to attacks, started in the Yeovile area in central Johannesburg.
As at the moment of filing this report, the identities of the injured foreigners yet unknown.
Local sources however said “African foreigners from different countries have come out ready to stand together and fight the citizens.”
The tensed atmosphere has reportedly forced many indoors with those caught in the cross fire hiding with precipitation.
