The brutal killing of Mozambican vendor Emmanuel Sithole in Alexandra township last Saturday has sent shock waves across South Africa and the world.

The Sunday Times published an eyewitness account by our reporter, Beauregard Tromp, and photographer James Oatway whose pictures of the unfolding attack brought home the full horror of the wave of xenophobia sweeping across South Africa.

Members of the public have come forward with offers of financial assistance to Sithole's family and for this purpose the Sunday Times has established the following fund:
