Widows of S Africa miners hunger for justice

Women who lost husbands in police shooting last year say none of the promised food parcels arrived.

    Widows of some of the miners killed by South African police last year have told Al Jazeera they are still waiting for promised financial help.

    Some of the women are so upset they have refused to attend the inquiry into the shootings.

    Al Jazeera’s Tania Page reports from South Africa’s Eastern Cape province.
