S. African workers clash with security guards at Harmony mine

Mine workers at Harmony Gold’s Kusasalethu mine in Carletonville, South Africa, have clashed with security guards, who retaliated with rubber bullets, the company said on Thursday. Five workers were injured following what spokesperson Henrika Basterfield described as “violent behavior and damage to the mine structure.” Some 578 employees were suspended on Thursday for taking part in an unsanctioned strike last week. Harmony’s management decided to close the facility “until the labor issues have been resolved.”
