People attend a commemoration service for the striking platinum miners that were killed a year ago, in Marikana, South Africa, Friday Aug. 16, 2013. It was a hot dusty afternoon at the brown rock hills near South Africa's Lonmin PLC mine in Marikana when South Africa was forced to face another bloody event in its long history of apartheid and state violence. Police opened fire a year ago on striking miners who carried sticks and homemade spears, killing 34. The details of Aug. 16, 2012 are still unsettled a year later in the small, impoverished community of Marikana, in South Africa's mineral-rich northwest. (AP Photo/Denis Farrell)
