SOUTH AFRICA: Court Convicts 8 Policemen For Killing A Mozambique Taxi Driver

A South African court has convicted eight policemen of murdering a Mozambican taxi driver who was tied and dragged behind a police van in 2013.

The judge said there was no doubt that the police could have foreseen that their actions would cause the death of 27-year-old Mido Macia.

The incident, recorded on video by a bystander, caused widespread revulsion at the time.
Rights groups have often accused South Africa's police of brutality.

President Jacob Zuma condemned the incident as "horrific" and "unacceptable".
