Marikana: South Africa police 'lied over shootings'

19 September 2013 Last updated at 17:52 BST

South African police lied about the Marikana shootings last year, a commission of inquiry has said.

It said police falsified or withheld documents and gave false accounts of events relating to the shootings, in which 34 striking miners were killed.

The commission's statement comes 10 days after it gained access to a senior policeman's computer hard drive.

Andrew Harding reports.
