TAIYUAN, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- More than 10 people were injured in a fight that broke out among workers at a Foxconn plant in north China's Shanxi Province, police said Monday.
The fight started at 11 p.m. Sunday in the plant's dormitory in the provincial capital of Taiyuan, drawing a large crowd of spectators and triggering chaos, according to a spokesman from the city's public security bureau.
Around 5,000 policemen were sent to the scene, bringing it under control as of 9 a.m. Monday, said the spokesman.
It was not yet clear how many workers were involved in the fight and its cause is under investigation.
Foxconn, the world's largest maker of computer components, faced criticism on harsh working conditions two years ago after a string of suicides committed by several Chinese factory employees.
The company currently has about 1 million employees on the Chinese mainland.
