Brazil mining railway line resumes operations

SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian mining giant Vale says its iron ore transport operations have resumed, three days after protesting Indians blocked part of its railroad in northern Brazil.

Earlier this week, Indians demanding property rights blocked part of the railroad that links the company's iron ore mines in the state of Para to the Ponta da Madeira port in Maranhao state.

Vale SA says in a Friday statement that the railway will resume its passenger service Saturday.

The company is the world's largest producer of iron ore.
