Two more die in South African unrest

Two people have died in South Africa amid ongoing labour unrest.

One woman died in hospital in Marikana after being hit by police gunfire, while an armoured police car knocked over and killed a miner in Rustenburg.

Employees at a platinum mine there want a similar deal to the Marikana workers, who sealed a pay hike two days ago.

Forty-five people died during their six-week strike, which saw some of the worst violence since the end of apartheid in the 1990s.
