S Africa mulls peacekeepers for mines

Mines still plagued by violence since last year's massacre in Marikana of 34 workers by police.

    There have been calls for peacekeeping forces to be deployed in South Africa's mines to prevent more violence during strikes.

    Last year, 34 protesting mine workers were shot dead by police.

    And in recent weeks four workers have been killed.
