Report: South African man dies after being dragged through street by police van

A South African taxi driver has died after being dragged through a street by a police van and beaten in custody, it is alleged.

Video obtained by the South African Daily Sun appears to show Mido Macia, 27, being tied to the back of a police van before it drives away.

The van stops briefly, at which point ITV News has cut the footage, before again driving away at higher speed.

The Daily Sun's report claims Mr Macia "made the mistake of arguing with the [police] about parking his taxi."
