9 killed in S.Africa mine union violence

Published: 08.13.12, 19:39 / Israel News

Nine people including two policemen have been killed in clashes between labour unions at a South African mine operated by world no. 3 platinum producer Lonmin , by far the deadliest spate of violence in a turf war rocking the sector.

Lonmin said the situation was "volatile" at its Western Platinum mine, 100km northwest of Johannesburg. The plant was operating at reduced capacity and was under heavy police guard. (Reuters)
