South African police say they clashed with protesters overnight on Friday night, near an Anglo American Platinum mine. The crippling labor unrest shows no sign of ending. Four people were arrested.

Police said officers used teargas and rubber-coated bullets to disperse about a thousand protesters who were marching towards a shaft near Rustenburg, about 120 km northwest of Johannesburg.

The crowd responded with petrol bombs, damaging one police vehicle. There were no reports of injuries. Large parts of the platinum and gold mining industry have been brought to a standstill by wildcat strikes that started in early August. The strikes intensified after the police killed 34 strikers at Lonmin’s Marikana platinum mine on August 16.
