South African miners return to work after union signs wage deal

Thousands of miners at South Africa's biggest platinum mining firms have returned to work, a day after unions signed a wage deal to end a five-month strike.

Employees at Anglo America Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin will have to undergo medical checks and safety training before they begin work again.

Nomsa Maseko reports on the miners' first day at work after a long absence.
