JOHANNESBURG - South African President Jacob Zuma said Saturday he has cancelled a state visit to Indonesia in order to deal with a wave of xenophobic violence against immigrants and other foreigners. Zuma ‘has cancelled his visit to Indonesia in order to attend to matters at home relating to the attacks on foreign nationals,’ his office said. The decision came amid growing alarm within South Africa - and rising outcry abroad - over a surge of attacks against foreigners that have left several people dead.

More than 30 arrests were made overnight Saturday around Johannesburg alone.
