Nine people were arrested for looting several foreign-owned businesses in Kwanobuhle, Eastern Cape police said on Thursday.

"A shop owned by an Ethiopian in Phato Street was also set alight by a group of people... the owner managed to flee the scene and notified the police," said spokesman Warrant Officer Gerda Swart.

The incident happened on Wednesday evening.

The group also pelted police vehicles with stones but no-one was injured, said Swart.

Six of those arrested were juveniles.

They are expected to appear in the Kwanobuhle Magistrate's Court on Friday to face charges of public violence and possession of stolen property.
