09:05, March 12, 2012

JOHANNESBURG, March 11(Xinhua) -- Two injured Chinese youths were discharged from a private hospital here two days after injured by robbers at their residence, the local community told Xinhua on Sunday.

They are now resting in their friends' residence in Johannesburg after leaving hospital on Saturday afternoon, the South Africa Chinese Community and Police Co-op Center (SACCPCC) said.

The doctor said the injured Chinese youths only suffered light injures and could return for a rest following undergoing a thorough diagnostic check in the hospital.

One of the injured youths told Xinhua on telephone on Sunday that they only sustained skin injures, and no inner wounds, but need a rest quietly for recovery.

He said they appreciated many Chinese people expressed concerns and sympathy with them.

On the evening of March 8, seven Chinese youths were savagely looted by a group of robbers armed with short guns and iron rods in their residence in Johannesburg. The robbery left one killed and two injured.

There are about 300,000 Chinese in South Africa, including more than 100,000 in Johannesburg.

The largest city and economic center in South Africa, Johannesburg is among those with the highest crime rates in the world.

In recent years, the South African police have carried out many operations against all kinds of crimes to improve the security situation.
