Security forces have opened fire on striking Freeport miners, killing at least one person and injuring six others. More than 1,000 workers were involved in the clashes on Monday at the Grasberg complex, one of the world’s biggest gold and copper mines, in Indonesia’s Papua province.
Grasberg is operated by US-owned company Freeport Indonesia but Rio Tinto helped finance mine expansion and receives a large proportion of the mine’s profits.
