At least 72 people have been killed and 1,234 arrested in rioting and looting in South Africa, which started on the weekend in KwaZulu-Natal province and spread to Johannesburg, as Gateway Pundit reported.
Shocking video from a burning mall in Durban showed a woman throwing a baby to safety from the second floor to the ground below, where it was caught by a helpful crowd of onlookers. The child was unhurt, as BBC reported.

Opposition leaders questioned the government response, which had called up 70.000 soldiers to enforce COVID lockdowns, but only 2.500 largely ineffective troops to fight the largest insurrection in South Africa since the end of Apartheid 1994. Videos showed police letting looters escape or participating in looting themselves.
