Somali shopowner Alodixashi Sheik Yusuf's murder case is expected to continue in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Magistrate Herman Badenhorst previously postponed the matter so that Yusuf's status in the country could be established.

He is accused of shooting dead Siphiwe Mahori, 14, in Snake Park, Soweto, last Monday. He allegedly fired at a group of people trying to rob his shop.

The shooting sparked a wave of looting of foreign-owned shops, which spread from Soweto to Kagiso on the West Rand and Sebokeng in the Vaal, causing several deaths, including a baby who was trampled by a group of people running.
