SA officials say mass deportations not related to recent violence

South African authorities say the deportation of undocumented migrants has nothing to do with the recent outbreak of violence and protests against foreigners.
Nigerian media has reported that 97 citizens accused of committing various offences were sent home from South Africa on Monday.
But the Department of Home Affairs says Nigerians haven't been singled out as hundreds of undocumented foreign nationals have been deported.
