Bodies discovered in SA mine shaft

Police in South Africa say they have ended a search for more bodies in a goldmine run by relatives of President Jacob Zuma and his predecessor, Nelson Mandela, after failing to find anything.

However, they say they are continuing investigations into reports that up to 20 miners were shot dead by security guards at the Grootvlei mine east of Johannesburg.

Four bodies were recovered on Thursday. The mine owners confirmed that their guards clashed with some miners on Monday.
