Police ‘aggravated’ Marikana situation

The police’s plan to disperse a group of more than 3 000 striking Lonmin mineworkers in August has come under serious scrutiny at the Marikana Commission of Inquiry.

Police have said in their evidence that an armed group of the protesters had attempted to break through the line they were setting up with barbed wire on three occasions, which eventually led to the shooting that left 34 dead.
