Last South African miners freed after charges dropped
The second and final batch of South African miners have been freed after controversial murder charges were dropped following a national outcry.
The 106 miners are set to return to the Marikana mine, where police shot dead 34 striking workers last month.
A militant union has refused to sign a "peace accord" with the government and mine owner Lonmin, insisting that it will remain on strike until its pay demands are met.
