BENONI, South Africa (AFP) - A South African court on Tuesday refused bail for nine policemen accused of dragging a Mozambican taxi driver behind their van and then beating him to death in custody.

"I do not think it's in the interest of justice that they be released on bail," said Magistrate Sam Makamu.
