MARIKANA, South Africa |
MARIKANA, South Africa Aug 16 (Reuters) - South African police moved in on Thursday to disperse thousands of striking miners armed with machetes and sticks from Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine, a Reuters cameraman said.
Police at the scene said they had been trying to negotiate with the striking rock-drill operators massed on a rocky outcrop near the mine, but the talks had failed.
