There is a small anti-war protest at the venue in Johannesburg where Tony Blair is due to speak.

Demonstrators have told ITV News they will attempt a citizen's arrest on Mr Blair.

The peace campaigner Archbishop Desmond Tutu pulled out of the same event in protest at the former prime minister's "morally indefensible" support for the Iraq war.
