At about noon, strik­ers con­fronted Lon­min se­cu­rity of­fi­cers

in Marikana. Two of the guards, Has­san Fundi and Frans Mabelane, were hacked to death with pan­gas, and the cars they were driv­ing were set alight. In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent at Lon­min’s K4 shaft, three

peo­ple were as­saulted and mine worker Thapelo Eric Mabebe, who

was not strik­ing, was killed. A num­ber of ve­hi­cles be­long­ing to Lon­min se­cu­rity were dam­aged.
