Jacob Zuma: Unrest in South Africa as jailed former president challenges sentence

News Correspondent

In South Africa, six people have been killed and more than 200 arrested as violence escalates  over the jailing of former president Jacob Zuma. He was arrested last Wednesday after he defied a court order to testify in a state backed inquiry into corruption during his time in office.

The recent violence has seen shops looted and businesses vandalized, and the army has now been deployed on the streets.
