Two shops belonging to foreign nationals in Gqeberha in the Eastern Cape have allegedly been petrol bombed.

The shops, one in Kwazakhele and the other in Zwide were apparently targetted in arson attacks on Wednesday evening.

Police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu says no one was injured during the attacks and no arrests have been made.

Naidu says the police are investigating if these two incidents are linked to the violence that erupted in Korsten on Wednesday afternoon between taxi operators and foreign nationals.

A total of eight minibus-taxis were razed and two damaged.

The incident follows a road rage incident after a collision between a minibus-taxi and a car.

A civilian car was also set alight and one shop went up in flames.
