May 31 – A Somali shopkeeper has been killed in ongoing violent clashes in Port Elizabeth. It is believed he was stoned to death. A second Somali man has been stabbed and wounded in running battles between the Booysens Park community and foreigners. The violence all started as an attempt to drive a gang out of the area, but after being stopped by police, residents have now turned on the foreigners instead.
