Violent protests by farm workers have erupted in South Africa after weeks of unrest in the country's mining industry. Television images showed protesters overturn a police truck and set fires in the streets Wednesday in a town in South Africa's Western Cape. The workers have been protesting their wages, saying they want a minimum wage of $17 a day. Currently, workers make about half that amount a day.
