Description 000803-EMI04.jpg CAPETOWN, SOUTH AFRICA TAXI WAR Police and soldiers man a roadblock outside Cape Towns largest black township, Khayelitsha. Early morning commuters were forced to walk to the outskirts of Khayelitsha to find buses, or to take trains to work. Police and military roadblocks sealed of the entire township for 24 hours, refusing access to all buses and taxis . The action is part of the effort to quell several months violence surrounding the dispute between taxi operators and the Golden Arrow bus company, over the lucrative township commuter routes. Seven bus drivers and passengers have been shot dead and others injured in attacks on the buses, allegedly by taxi drivers and their hired hitmen. 2000, Eric Miller/iAfrika Photos
