Violence erupts as Cape Town's law enforcement attempt to remove migrants from park

Violence erupted in Cape Town as law enforcement officers attempted to remove migrants from a park in Greenmarket Square.

During the clashes, one migrant is arrested after trying to get law enforcement officers off his sister.

The migrants had been squatting in the area around Greenmarket Square since October when they were forcibly removed from the UNHCR offices.

During a confrontation, Kaylynn Palm, a journalist with news platform Eye Witness News, was confronted by a Cape Town law enforcement officer for using her phone to film an incident between an officer and a migrant.

This footage was filmed on March 2.
