South Africa: Violence erupts ahead of Malema hearing

Supporters of Julius Malema, the youth leader of South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC), have clashed with police in Johannesburg.

Violence erupted ahead of Mr Malema's disciplinary hearing on Tuesday.

The 30 year old is charged with "sowing divisions" in the ANC, and with bringing the party into disrepute by calling for the government of Botswana to be overthrown.

Karen Allen reports.
