Facility that reportedly makes parts for Apple's iPhone 5 closed after 5,000 police put down a riot [nvolving as many as 2,000 employees and] injured 40...At the end of the day, what Mike Daisey said about the Apple corporation is brutally true. The universe works that way sometimes. With indirection, direction is found.
The fight, the cause of which was under investigation, erupted on Sunday night at a privately managed dormitory near a Foxconn Technology Group factory in the northern city of Taiyuan, the company and Chinese police said.
The company and police said the violence was not work-related and grew out of a personal dispute, but comments posted on Chinese Internet bulletin boards said it might have erupted after a security guard hit an employee.
