JOHANNESBURG - At least a third of the 62 people killed in xenophobic violence that hit South Africa last month were South African citizens, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

Government communications head Themba Maseko said an inter-ministerial task team had reported to Cabinet at its meeting on Wednesday that 21 of those who died were South Africans.

Maseko said only five Zimbabwean immigrants are so far known to have died in the violence.
