Several people were injured and rushed to the Keetmanshoop State Hospital after gunshots and rubber bullets were fired into rioting mobs in the Ileni informal settlement in Keetmanshoop on Sunday. The shots were allegedly fired by aggressive civilians and officers of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) during a mass confrontation that lasted for hours between battling residents of the large informal area.
