Mourning in S Africa over mine deaths

President calls for mourning over shooting of dozens outside mine, as community searches for loved ones.

South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has announced a week of national mourning days after police opened fire on a workers’ strike at a platinum mine, killing 34 people.

Many people in the Marikana community, the site of the mine, are still searching for their loved ones – brothers, husbands and cousins who never returned from the strikes – and are still to be accounted for.
