Protesters have stormed and trashed an H&M store in South Africa after a controversial advert.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) protesters targeted six H&M stores in the Gauteng province, where South Africa's economic hub of Johannesburg is located, tearing down shop displays and throwing clothes around, police said.
Police also cautioned members of the public during the protest to avoid the mall even though they maintained the situation were "under control".
H&M apologised several days ago for the image, which ran on its website.
The incident comes after the global clothing company H&M came under fire for an advertisement showing a black child in a hoodie that read "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle", sparking worldwide outrage on social media and other platforms.
After police arrived, protesters gathered in front of the shop's door chanting, dancing and whistling, according to Xinhua reporter at the site.
