Reuters reports that the South African embassy in Nigeria has temporarily closed following the ongoing xenophobic crisis, Foreign Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor.

She said South Africa was in constant contact with Nigerian authorities to try to restore calm, adding there is no provision in local law for compensation for damage caused in the attacks.

There is an Afrophobia we are sensing that exists, there is resentment and we need to address that,” Pandor said on the sidelines of a continental economic conference in Cape Town.
