MADRID, 23 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Hundreds of workers at Apple's main iPhone manufacturing plant in China have clashed with security personnel amid tensions over tough restrictions imposed by a recent COVID-19 outbreak.
The Foxconn Technology Group workers' protest began in the early hours of Wednesday after clashing with guards over unpaid wages and fears of the spread of coronavirus infection, Bloomberg news agencies reported.
Several workers have been injured as a result of the protests. The riot police have appeared at the scene of the incidents with the aim of restoring order.
The company, for its part, has declined to comment on the incident.
The factory, which employs more than 200,000 workers, has been closed since October, leaving many of its employees in isolation, despite some fleeing the plant on foot last month.
