South African govt cuts off funding to airline
The South African government has refused a request from the beleaguered national carrier for $500m (£400m) worth of emergency funding.
South African Airways now faces liquidation, with the possible loss of 5,000 jobs.
The airline has not turned a profit since 2011 and has received more than $1bn worth of bailouts over the past three years.
It has suspended most domestic and international flights because of the coronavirus pandemic.
