CORRECTION: South Africa-Mining Violence story


JOHANNESBURG (AP) — In some versions of a story Sept. 3 about ongoing violence surrounding illegal strikes in South Africa, The Associated Press erroneously reported that police and security guards fired rubber bullets and tear gas at sacked gold miners at a Gold Fields mine. The clash took place at Gold One International's mine. Gold Fields spokesman Sven Lunsche said an ongoing strike of 12,000 workers at Gold Fields has been peaceful with no clashes.
