Veteran cameraman Dudley Saunders was killed when he was hit by a train while filming in Soweto.

Saunders, who documented much of the pre-1994 elections unrest, was filming for the BBC at the time of his death, SABC news reported today.

The well-known cameraman recently worked on SABC’s Special Assignment and M-Net’s Carte Blanche programmes.

According to the SABC, Saunders made headlines in 2011 after he was stoned by supporters of Julius Malema during a protest outside the ANC’s Luthuli House headquarters.

Saunders was the son of former political journalist Cliff Saunders.
