South Africa's police ministry says more than 30 people were killed when its officers opened fire on striking workers at a platinum mine.

A police ministry spokesman gave the figure Friday after Thursday's shooting in Marikana, just northwest of Johannesburg.

The spokesman says an investigation into the shooting has begun.

The protest and ensuing violence at the mine, which began a week ago, has killed at least 10 people there, including two police officers.
