Global Citizen Festival: Beyoncè and her jaw-dropping outfits

Beyoncé JAY-Z Usher Pharrell & More Perform for Global Citizens Festival in South Africa

The Carters played a handsome set at the event in South Africa, paying tribute to Mandela with performances of "Holy Grail", "Part II (On The Run)" and "03 Bonnie & Clyde".

They joined the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Pharrell, Coldplay, Usher, Ed Sheeran and Cassper Nyovest for the festival, hosted by the South African duo of Trevor Noah and Bonang Matheba.

The Festival is being held to celebrate Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday anniversary and call for an end to extreme poverty across the world.

Mandela was jailed under South Africa's apartheid regime for 27 years.

"The criminals were basically having a field day", said Zikhona Tshona, a reporter for the South African news organisation eNCA.

Fellow concert-goer Ano Shonhiwa, 23, told AFP "there was so much chaos when the concert ended and people wanted to leave". "We do not go by what is posted on social media because the only time something is factual is if we get an affidavit", Naidoo said.

CDC: U.S. AFM cases appear to have peaked
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it has confirmed 134 cases of AFM, out of 299 suspected cases in 33 states. AFM doesn't seem to be occurring in clusters, meaning that the condition itself is not contagious from one person to another.

She said the muggers were even pulling knives and guns on the defenceless revellers. "Some guys were walking around with knives and screwdrivers, threatening people", he said.

The Global Citizen and another group backing the concert, the House of Mandela, said it was "saddened to hear the challenges people had while leaving the venue".

Mandela was imprisoned for almost three decades for his fight against the apartheid regime. Cele said police had one case number for a stolen cellphone, but said that no other cases had been opened.

World Bank President Jim Kim who was among the political and business leaders attending the event announced a $1billion investment in health and education across Africa in 2019.

Also in 2013, thieves made off with cash takings at the stadium after a Justin Bieber concert.
