South Africa police fire rubber bullets at farm workers

South Africa's police have fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse striking farm workers in the wine-producing Western Cape region.

The workers barricaded roads and threw stones at police in De Doorns town, a top grape-producing area, local media reported.

The strikers, who pick and pack fruit, are demanding their daily wage be more than doubled to about $17 (£11).
