South Africa Sunday vowed to hunt down those behind a wave of attacks targeting immigrants, saying 307 people had been arrested over violence that left at least seven people dead.President Jacob Zuma Saturday canceled a state visit to Indonesia to deal with surge in violence, and pleaded with foreigners to stay in South Africa.Sporadic violence erupted again overnight in Johannesburg and Durban, where an AFP photographer said one Zimbabwean's house had been gasoline-bombed and his two cars torched.The spate of attacks has revived memories of xenophobic bloodshed in 2008, when 62 people were killed in Johannesburg's townships, shaking South Africa's post-apartheid image as a "rainbow nation" of different ethnic groups.Zuma Saturday traveled to Durban to visit one camp, where he faced a hostile reception from the crowd, which yelled "go home, go home" and "too late, too late".He vowed to end the unrest and sought to assure the crowd there was a place for foreigners in South Africa.
