Xenophobia: Air Tanzania suspends Flights to Johannesburg due to Violence

Tanzania’s national carrier suspended flights from Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg, citing ongoing violence as a risk to passengers.

“You are aware there is ongoing violence in South Africa where the youth have taken laws in their hands,” Tanzania’s Transport Minister Isack Kamwelwe told journalists in Dar es Salaam. “Due to that, we decided not to transport passengers to the destination where their lives will be in jeopardy.”

At least seven people died and hundreds of arrests have been made during a week of anti-immigrant violence in South Africa.
