At least 20 mine staff die in SA road crash

SOUTH AFRICA: At least 20 people have died in South Africa after a major road accident in the northern province of Limpopo.

The victims – believed to be miners – were on a bus which crashed head-on with a truck.

They were being transported to one of the biggest diamond mines in the country – Venetia – owned by the mining giant De Beers.

Venetia, near the borders with Botswana and Zimbabwe, accounts for more than 40% of South Africa’s annual diamond production.
