S Africa vice president faces Marikana probe

Country's deputy president faces probe into the 2012 Marikana killings of 34 striking miners.

    South Africa's deputy president has testified at a commission of inquiry into the deaths of 34 people at a platinum mine two years ago.

    Under cross examination, Cyril Ramaphosa told the inquiry that he wanted police to arrest striking miners - and not to do anything else. Most of those killed were shot dead by police.
