Women mourn as family members of the 34 people who died when police opened fire on strikers at the Lonmin platinum mine north west of Johannesburg on August 16, 2013 gather at the scene of the bloody shooting to cleanse the ground. Widows' songs of praise turned into frenzied wailing as they got off the bus. Each family got a sacrificial animal to slaughter as part of the cleansing ritual.
