The South African mine at the centre of the violence that saw 34 people gunned down has resumed production after nearly a third of its staff returned to work.

Lonmin had ordered 3,000 illegally striking rock drill operators to return to work or risk losing their jobs at its Marikana mine, and appealed to a further 25,000 staff and 10,000 contractors to report for duty after police said it was safe.
