South africa marikana strike ends  20120919

A man flashes the victory sign after striking miners secured a 22 percent pay hike from London-listed Lonmin platinum mine in Marikana on September 18, 2012. The miners will resume work on September 20, ending a deadly six-week wildcat strike which started on August 10 and spread to other platinum and gold mines in the country, triggering growing concerns that the industrial action would dent the economy of Africa's wealthiest country.
