  • South African President Jacob Zuma said he will release the results of an investigation into the deaths of 44 people at Lonmin Plc’s Marikana mining complex before the end of June.

    Zuma made the announcement Tuesday in the National Assembly in Cape Town. He established a Commission of Inquiry headed by retired Judge Ian Farlam to investigate the violence.

    “The country needed to know what had happened in Marikana where more than 40 people lost their lives,” he said.

    The killing of 34 protesting workers at the mine, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) northwest of Johannesburg, on Aug. 16, 2012, was the deadliest police action in South Africa since the end of apartheid. Ten more people, including police, died in violence before that day.

  • Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban ruled out running for the country’s presidency, signaling he’d seek a fourth term as premier in 2018.

    “The chances of me becoming president are sub-zero,” Orban told reporters Tuesday in Szekesfehervar, Hungary, according to his office’s website. Orban said that the job of prime minister is a “better fit” for him and that he would seek re-election as head of the ruling Fidesz party this year.

    Hungary will pick a president in 2017 after Janos Ader’s term expires. While eastern European countries including Poland, Romania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic elect their heads of state directly, the post is filled in Hungary through a vote in parliament, where Fidesz has an almost two-thirds majority.
