Miners reject Lonmin pay offer
South African miners rejected a pay offer from Lonmin that would have seen workers get at least 5,550 rand (£413) a month, far less than the 12,500 rand demanded by strikers.

Eads hits back at merger 'snipers'
Eads, the owner of Airbus, has attacked critics of its proposed £30bn mega-merger with the UK defence giant BAE Systems as "anonymous snipers".
