At least 13 striking miners were arrested yesterday after clashes with police and security guards near Rustenburg, North West.

They apparently tried to prevent emergency services from extinguishing a fire they had allegedly started at a substation.

Meanwhile, Legal Aid SA says it cannot afford to help the 78 miners who were injured or the 275 arrested during the shooting in Marikana in August.

The organisation says it provided one-point-two-million-Rands to pay the legal team acting on behalf of 23 families of miners killed in the tragedy.
