>> An alarming surge of violence targeting Africans in India. Police arresting five people this week in connection with an attack at a shopping mall near New Delhi that left four Nigerian students battered in the hospital.>> I don't drink. I don't do, my God, I don't do any stupid thing in this country.
But for Indians to come and attack me just for no reason, I don't see, I don't know what to say.>> Police haven't officially given a motive for the attack, but this angry crowd rallied just outside the mall while it was happening. They believe a local teenager died from an overdose and that Nigerian students gave him the drugs.
It's part of a far wider state of aggression targeting Africans. On Wednesday a group of men dragged this young Kenyan woman out of a taxi and beat her. So far no motive has been made clear. And last year on top of several attacks, a Congolese man was stoned to death by a mob after getting in an argument with a cab driver.
Nigeria has praised Indian police for making swift arrests after the mall attack. But it also issued a warning urging it's citizens in India to stay vigilant.
