JOHANNESBURG - Armed security guards have been deployed to prevent more than 2,000 people from an attempted land invasion in Rabie Ridge in Johannesburg.

This after an earlier stand-off.

Police fired tear gas and stun grenades while the JMPD used a water cannon to try and disperse the crowd.

Some community members said they just want land.

"They must come and show us the title deeds," said a man.

"We are sick and tired of these people with money who come and buy the land to sell it to government officials.

"We want the government to hear us."
