South Africa schools torched by protesters

More than 40 schools shut down, and some burned, in protest over slow provision of state services.

    As striking miners roil South Africa, another protest movement is also brewing as more than 40 schools in Northern Cape province have been closed.

    The facilities have been shut by violent protests over what has being described as the government’s slow delivery of basic services.

    Protesters say unless something is done to improve their lives, people will not allow the schools to reopen.
