S Africa opposition face off with trade union

Democratic Alliance protesters clash with COSATU workers on supporting a youth wage subsidy.

    Several people were hurt after a standoff in Johannesburg between the Democratic Alliance, South Africa's main opposition party, and COSATU, its main trade union coalition.

    Clashes broke out when COSATU supporters refused to back the Democratic Alliance's campaign on supporting a youth wage subsidy, which they say could create more than 400,000 jobs.
