Lonmin workers on strike after shooting in South Africa

Workers at Lonmin's platinum operations in South Africa have gone on a wildcat strike.

The action follows the shooting of a union official at the weekend and has reignited fears of the violence that hit the industry last year.

Last August, 34 miners were shot dead at Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine near Rustenburg.
