Police battle refugees during eviction of protesters in Cape Town

Police have arrested about 100 people in an altercation flowing from a court-ordered eviction to remove a group involved in a sit-in protest in Cape Town.

About 300 refugees and asylum seekers have been occupying the Waldorf Arcade in St George's Mall, outside the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), since October 9. They want the UN agency to move them to a different country, for fear of xenophobic violence in South Africa.
