New Year celebrations in Hillbrow in <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><place w:st="on"><city w:st="on">Johannesburg on Wednesday night were dampened by rain.
The suburb was notorious for raucous and chaotic New Year’s Eve celebrations but this year police said it seemed rain had deterred people from going on the rampage.
However, there were a few incidents of people hurling rocks and bottles at police.
Roadblocks were set up across the area while officers monitored the situation from a helicopter.
