Marikana mine killings: South African police 'planted weapons'


South African police have been accused of planting weapons on the bodies of dead workers killed at the Marikana mine in August.

Photographs taken by police suggested large knives had been placed near the bodies after they had been shot, a lawyer told an inquest into the deaths.

Thirty-four miners died when police opened fire at striking miners in August, leading to widespread shock.
