The bodies of two illegal miners have been discovered at a disused mine east of Johannesburg in South Africa. The abandoned mine is in the same area where more than 20 illegal miners were recently rescued after being trapped underground for several days. Those miners, who were reportedly trapped by a rival group of illegal miners, were arrested after they emerged from the shaft.
