11 Foxconn workers injured in brawl near plant in China
TAIPEI (AFP) - Eleven workers at Taiwan's Foxconn, which assembles products for Apple and other tech companies, were injured during a brawl near its plant in eastern China, the company said on Monday.
The incident happened on the night of Sept 19 when two groups of workers began fighting after they were drinking in shops outside the plant in Yantai, Shandong province, to celebrate the Mid-Autumn festival, it said.
About 400 people gathered to watch the brawl, during which 11 people suffered light injuries before the police were called in to quell the fight, a company statement said.
"There was no serious injury or death... the company has educated those who got involved and the situation was resolved," it said, denying some reports that three people were killed in the fight.
