Police and the City of Cape Town’s law enforcement have moved in-to disperse the foreign nationals from United Nations Refugee Agency Office in Cape Town.
The foreign nationals have been camping out at the UN refugee agency offices demanding help to leave South Africa.
Refugees from Somalia, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Pakistan want the agency to urgently repatriate them.
It appears authorities have arrested dozens of refugees and asylum-seekers who have been engaged in non-violent protest action.
Police and law enforcement officers carried some people away, loading them into armoured vehicles.
