South Africa: Four killed at protest over water shortages

The issue of police brutality in South Africa has once again reared its head, after four people were killed following a protest over water shortages.

It happened earlier this week at a township in one of South Africa's drought-hit regions.

According to a police watchdog report in 2013, more than 430 incidents due to police action resulted in deaths.
