Shots were fired as operators of metered taxis attacked Uber Technologies Inc. drivers in Johannesburg’s Sandton financial district, intensifying the territorial dispute between workers for the U.S. ride-hailing service and traditional taxi motorists.
One taxi driver was arrested and his vehicle impounded, the city’s Metro Police Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said by phone on Friday. Three police officers were injured as they tried to stop the violence, he said.
“We are aware of an incident that took place in Sandton this afternoon involving intimidation and violence against Uber driver-partners,” an Uber spokeswoman said in e-mailed comments. “Authorities were notified and arrests have been made. The threats and intimidation against those who want to use Uber to boost their income is unacceptable.”

India, a Hindu-majority country, is home to more than 160 million Muslims, but only a handful of them have joined the Middle Eastern group. Indian leaders and members of the community say this testifies to the strength of the country’s secular democracy.
In a video monitored by the U.S. intelligence group SITE, Islamic State mocked Muslims living in harmony with Hindus who worship cows, trees and the sun, and urged them to travel to IS-held territories in the “Caliphate”.
“In this land you get to have hatred for the kuffar [disbelievers]. In this land you get to perform jihad,” said an Indian fighter who is identified as Abu Salman al-Hindi operating in the Syrian province of Homs.

A Muslim girl who took a “defiant” selfie at an anti-Islam protest in Belgium allegedly posted anti-Semitic comments on her Twitter, Facebook, and Ask.fm accounts, according to a Belgian former soldier and a leading Dutch website.
Zakia Belkhiri, 22, was lauded as an “inspiration” by the media as her picture next to Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest) protesters went viral.
But web sleuths have now claimed that Ms. Belkhiri’s “peace sign” in the picture is perhaps out of character for her. They claim she tweeted in 2012: “Hitler didnt kill all the jews, he left some. So we [would] know why he was killing them”.
