He said that the attacks started in the morning in two sprawling shanty compounds over rumours that foreigners were behind a spate of suspected ritual killings that had occurred in recent weeks.
Munganga-Chanda said so far, over 250 people had been arrested in connection with the looting of shops owned by Rwandan nationals while the number of looted shops stood at 65.
