A judge has sentenced eight former South African policemen to 15 years in prison for the murder of a Mozambican taxi driver.

Mido Macia was killed in 2013 when officers tied him to the back of a police van by his arms before driving off. He was found in a pool of blood in police custody.

According to BBC News, Judge Bert Bam called the killing “barbaric” but acknowledged that it was not premeditated.
