South Africans 'fought in Gaza war'

Johannesburg lawyer hopes to take South African citizens to court over war crimes.

    Efforts to prosecute those who may have committed war crimes in Israel's war on Gaza have spread beyond the Middle East.

    A lawyer in South Africa has identified 75 South African nationals who he says were fighting with the Israeli army in the war earlier this year.

    Feroze Boda, based in Johannesburg and working on behalf of two local pro-Palestinian organisations, says the soldiers should face court action for their involvement.

    Imran Garda reports from Johannesburg.
