South African miners' village fury at deaths

Tensions remain high at Wonderkop mining village, the home of most of the 34 strikers shot dead by police last week.

    South African opposition politicians are calling for the government to be held responsible for last week's violence at a platinum mine.

    A total of 44 people, including 34 shot by police on Thursday, have died after protests for better working conditions and pay turned violent.

    At Wonderkop mining village, where most of the miners who were killed resided, tensions remain high.
