Protests rock Johannesburg after police shot disabled teen

Aug 28, 2020 17:17 IST

Violent protests broke out in South Africa’s Johannesburg suburb on Thursday following the gunning down of a disabled teenage boy, allegedly by South African police on patrol. Police fired teargas, stun grenades and rubber bullets after angry protestors burnt tires and hurled rocks at the police, setting up barricades along the streets and damaging a local police station. Sister to the slain 16-year-old Nathaniel Julius, told local television that police opened fire after her brother failed to respond to their questions due to his disability. The national police watchdog is currently investigating the killing.
