Two South Africa men captured in local media images beating and stabbing a Mozambican man to death during the anti-foreigner violence in April were found guilty of murder on Friday, state broadcaster SABC said.

The two accused were found guilty of killing the Mozambican national Emmanuel Sithole in the Johannesburg shanty town of Alexandra. The two, who had denied the charges, would be sentenced in December, the television station said.

Authorities we not available to confirm the convictions.

The wave of anti-immigrant attacks first surfaced in parts of coastal city Durban in the eastern Kwa-Zulu Natal province before quickly spreading to the commercial capital of Johannesburg. At least seven people were killed, while hundreds of foreigners fled to safety camps.
