(BBC) – At both ends of the African continent, there is macabre drama being played out over migration.
At the southern tip of the continent, poor black South Africans have risen up against poor black immigrants from African countries.
They want them to go back to their own countries. At least seven people have been killed.
There has been reaction from almost every part of the continent.
Threats have been issued to South African businesses. There is general outrage – African countries helped black South Africans fight apartheid and Africa expected some gratitude in return.
