Security forces have removed firebrand opposition leader Julius Malema from South Africa's parliament during a speech by President Jacob Zuma.

Mr Malema and allies from his Economic Freedom Fighters party raised numerous points of order after Mr Zuma began his annual state of the nation speech.

The speaker of parliament then ordered that they be removed.

The largest opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, walked out in protest at the removal of the MPs.

Last year, the EFF disrupted another presidential speech, chanting: "Pay back the money".

They accuse Mr Zuma of benefitting unduly from taxpayer-funded upgrades to his private residence in the village of Nkandla.

The president has denied any wrongdoing.
