South Africa links 12 suspected instigators to riots

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “South Africa links 12 suspected instigators to riots” – below is their description.

South Africans are waiting to hear who was behind what President Cyril Ramaphosa called orchestrated rioting and looting last week.

There are 12 suspected instigators, but only six have been arrested so far.

It was sparked by the jailing of former President Jacob Zuma.

In Zuma’s home province of KwaZulu Nata, intelligence failures and a slow police response helped the chaos spread quickly.

Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports from the province’s biggest city, Durban.
