Durban - Durban police on Monday vowed to arrest those who led the protest at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday night.

"We are busy investigating and we believe that some will be arrested soon because they are known," Brigadier Phindile Radebe said.

According to the Associated Press about 300 security stewards protested about low wages after the game between Germany and Australia. The AP quoted one of the stewards, Fanak Falakhebuengu, as saying he had heard they would be paid R1 500 a day, but were only getting R190.

"They were supposed to give us 1 500, that's what FIFA told us and they gave us 190."

Radebe said spectators had already left the stadium when the protest started.

"The police managed to move them away from the stadium, but they regrouped and continued with the protest."

Police fired rubber bullets at them.
