Eight South African police officers have been charged with murder amid outrage over the death of a taxi driver who was dragged along the ground while tied to a police van.
The incident in the Johannesburg area of Daveyton on Tuesday was caught on video by a bystander and the film has since gone viral on YouTube.
Mido Macia, 27, originally from Mozambique, did not die while he was dragged down the street, but was later found dead in his police cell.
Moses Dlamini, of the police investigation unit, said the officers were charged with murder late Friday, The Associated Press reported.
In a statement, South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma said that the “visuals of the incident are horrific, disturbing and unacceptable.”
