Miners may strike over safety

The biggest mining union may strike to force mining companies to focus on the safety of workers, following a spate of recent deaths at mines. About 200 miners are killed in accidents at South African mines every year, the National Union of Mineworkers General Secretary Frans Baleni said. "The fatalities and deaths at mines cannot be tolerated any longer," he said. - Reuters
