Another 27 blacks were re- ported injured, two of them seriously, and one policeman was hurt in the incident which revived memories of the 1960 Sharpville shooting. Officials confirmed the 12 dead blacks had been shot. Earlier reports said one black worker had been hacked to death by fellow workers. The shooting brought a drop in South African gold shares in London and prices on the Jo- hannesburg exchange fell after a sell-off in the gold sec- tion spread to other in- dustrials. Brokers said the market fol- lowed a pattern set by the stock exchanges after the Sharpeville incident in which 67 blacks were killed and dozens wounded 13 years ago during a demonstration against laws controlling the movement ot blacks in white areas DEFENDED HIS MEN Deputy Police Minister James Kruger defended the action of his men at the Western Deep Levels mine here. He said the police had been surrounded by the rioters in semi-darkness and were forc- ed to use their guns in self-de- fence They only opened fire in cases of ''extreme necessity." he said. Both the Opposition party and the small Progressive Party called for a judicial in- quiry into the shootings and Chief Gatsha Buthelezi. leader of the Kwazulu African Homeland Movement, condemned the police action. Buthelezi said the shootings were an indication that "a Two Kalispcll men charged in drug case KALISPELL, Mont.
