'No Justice' for South African Miners Seven Years After Massacre

The seventh anniversary of the Marikana Massacre, which saw 34 miners at Lonmin Platinum's Marikana operations shot dead during a protest, has brought no sign of justice for the affected families; not a single police officer has been prosecuted since the shooting and none of the recommendations made by the Farlam Commission of Inquiry have been implemented.
