VIDEO: Mob attacks Africans in India

Dozens of attackers using steel chairs on Tuesday attacked Africans in a mall, Ansal plaza Greater Noida, a satellite city of New Delhi, in India.

In a video that went viral,  locals went on a violent rampage using steel chairs to attack shoppers in the mall.

However, the police said 10 people had been wounded, while India’s foreign minister said authorities were investigating the attacks.

It was reported that hundreds of residents of the Indian city attacked Africans after a teenage boy died of a suspected drug overdose.

Africans living in India frequently face discrimination and even violence and are often accused of involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Riots broke out late Monday after police released five Nigerian students detained over the youth’s death — saying they had no evidence against them.
