UN Human Rights Chief condemns xenophobic attack in South Africa
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay today condemned the murder of a Somali mother and her three children in South Africa.
This is one of innumberable xenophobic killings in South Africa.
South Africa has not got rid of racist violence and discriminations even though the constitution of the country has declared equality and nondiscrimination among all the South Africans.Moreover, killing of immigrants has also become a growing problem in the recent years.
Pillay has also urged the concerned authorities to take quick and effective measures to protect foreign migrants and refugees from any further attacks.
“Xenophobic attacks unfortunately occur regularly in quite a few countries, but this is one of the most vicious examples we have heard of recently, outside of war zones,” she said.
