Marikana mine shootings: South African inquiry delayed


A South African inquiry into the deaths of 44 people, including 34 miners shot dead by police, has been delayed to let lawyers consult the clients.

A lawyer for some families said not all of the dead had been buried and so he had not been able to speak to those relatives.

Commissioners have already visited the scene of the killings near the Lonmin-owned platinum mine in Marikana.

Milton Nkosi reports.
