JOHANNESBURG Oct 31 (Reuters) - Forbes & Manhattan Coal said on Wednesday it has suspended all operations at its Magdalena and Aviemore underground mines in South Africa after a worker died in a strike-related incident.

"We have taken a decision to suspend all operations until such time as deemed safe and appropriate," Chief Executive Stephan Theron said in a statement.
