    South Africa's government capital, Pretoria, has seen protests by anti-immigrant groups broken up by police with rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades, after clashes with immigrants. We hear from Nomsa Maseko, who's been talking to both sides. Meanwhile, in Japan, today is Premium Friday - the government is encouraging all offices to close early on the last Friday of every month, to give workers time off.
