Video Shows Looting and Riots at Mall in Durban, South Africa

Rioting continued in the South African port city of Durban on Tuesday, June 13, following a weekend of unrest that saw shopping centers in the area ransacked.

Zuma is to serve a 15-month sentence for contempt of court, amid corruption allegations.

Officials in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng said at least 72 people had died in the violence, with several hundred arrests made. At least 10 people died in a stampede on Tuesday morning at a mall in Soweto, Johannesburg.
