The British government said on Monday there is a high threat of attacks against foreigners in shopping malls in South Africa, two days after a similar advisory was issued by the United States embassy in Pretoria.

The warning identified upmarket shopping areas and malls in the commercial hub of Johannesburg and Cape Town, widely regarded as South Africa's tourism capital, as the main target areas in the suspected planned attacks.

Africa's most industrialised country has a significant expatriate and tourist population but has seldom been associated with Islamist militancy.

South Africa's government said the country was safe following the US warning.
