Johannesburg - The trial of seven policemen charged with killing protester Andries Tatane was postponed by the Ficksburg Regional Court on Monday.

Court officials battled all morning to get faulty recording equipment to work, but eventually had to call in a repair team from Bloemfontein.

The case was postponed until Tuesday.

Tatane was killed on April 13 last year, allegedly by police using rubber bullets during a service delivery protest in Ficksburg.
