South African police say at least 13 injured at Amplats mine

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African police said on Monday that at least 13 people were injured, including four security guards who were hacked by machetes, in a labor fight at an Anglo American Platinum mine.

At least five workers were also shot in the conflict sparked by a turf battle between rival unions at the company also known as Amplats, police said.
