Violent clashes at iPhone factory in China

Violent protests erupted this Wednesday at the world’s largest iPhone factory, located in central China, at a time when authorities are trying to contain an outbreak of covid-19 and maintain production, before the Christmas period.

Videos released by workers at the factory, located in the city of Zhengzhou, Henan province, show employees clashing with police officers armed with batons and dressed in white protective suits. In the images, there are police officers beating workers, among whom some are bleeding from the head and others are limping.
