Hip hop star Mos Def arrested and ordered out of South Africa

Hip hop star Mos Def has been arrested in South Africa for using an unrecognized 'world passport'.
The rapper and actor, who now goes by the name Yasiin Bey, was detained at Cape Town International Airport for violating immigration laws, a government spokesman said.
When asked to present his travel documents when trying to leave South Africa, Mos Def handed over a world passport instead of a genuine one, officials said.

His visa had expired and he must now leave the country within 14 days. Hip hop star and his family were banned from South Africa for five years.
'We are all fans guys... but the law is the law,' government spokesman said.
