South Africa miners: Marikana massacre victims buried

Some of the miners who were shot dead by police at the Marikana mine in South Africa have been buried.

Prosecutors in South Africa had initially charged 270 striking mineworkers over the deaths of 34 of their colleagues but these have provisionally been dropped.

Karen Allen reports from the Eastern Cape, where some of the funerals took place over the weekend.
