Rubber bullets and stun grenades were used by police to diffuse a crowd of striking Anglo-American Platinum miners at the Congress of South Africa Trade Union’s assembly in Rustenberg.

The group was dressed in black t-shirts jamming the entrance to the Olympia stadium where the rally was set to take place.

The entourage is believed to be members of a committee stand for striking miners in the region.

Among the speakers who were expected at the gathering, were SA Communist Party secretary general Blade Nzimande, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe and Cosatu's general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi.
