Workers building Samsung factory riot in Vietnam

Workers building a large factory for Samsung in northern Vietnam have fought with security guards and set fire to motorbikes. State media reports on Thursday said that the unrest followed an argument between a guard and a worker who turned up late at the complex. Local official Duong Ngoc Long said police restored order after three hours.

Video posted on YouTube showed workers throwing rocks at police as thick black smoke rose from parts of the complex. Samsung and other tech companies are increasingly moving factories to Vietnam, where labor costs are cheaper than in neighboring China.
