Indonesia villagers block roads to Inco nickel mine -witnesses

SOROWAKO, Indonesia, Aug 6 (Reuters) - About 500 Indonesian villagers have blocked roads leading to a nickel mine operated by PT International Nickel Indonesia INCO.JK on Indonesia's Sulawesi island, Reuters witnesses said on Thursday.

The villagers blocked the roads because of concerns about job cuts at the mine after INCO recently announced plans to cut 87 jobs. (Reporting by Yusuf Ahmad in Sorowako and Fitri Wulandari in Jakarta, editing by Sara Webb)
