South Africa marks a bittersweet Youth Day

Name of annual celebration rings hollow to the 50 per cent of nation's young people who have no job.

    On Saturday, the nation of South Africa will celebrate Youth Day, an annual commemoration of a 1976 student protest that helped end apartheid.

    Today, however, young South Africans are facing a much different struggle: half of the country's youth are jobless.
