A South African court has, sentenced eight police officers to 15 year each for killing a 27-year-old Mozambican taxi driver.
27 year old Mido Macia, was killed in February 2013 when the officers aged between 25 and 56, dragged him handcuffed to the back of a police van and further assaulted him in a holding cell.
Macia eventually died from head injuries and internal bleeding caused by being dragged through the streets of Johannesburg in full view of witnesses. The video was caught by onlookers and broadcast around the world.
A lawyer for the former officer said they would appeal against the murder conviction.
