At least 300 people gathered for an anti-immigration march in the South African capital Pretoria Friday, as President Jacob Zuma condemned xenophobic violence that has targeted shops and homes.Attacks against foreigners have erupted regularly in recent years in South Africa, fueled by the country's high unemployment and poverty levels.In the last week, more than 20 shops have been targeted in Atteridgeville, outside Pretoria, while residents in Rosettenville, south of Johannesburg, attacked at least 12 houses.In 2008, South Africa experienced its worst bout of xenophobic violence, which left 62 people dead.
