Events have been taking place across South Africa to remember the 44 people killed in recent violence at the north-western Marikana platinum mine.

A memorial service at the Lonmin-owned mine was attended by church leaders, politicians and thousands of mourners.

The BBC's Navdip Dhariwal was at the service, where she said police - seen by many there as responsible for the massacre - were keeping a very low profile.
