Rioters ransack Malian govt buildings after dispute with Randgold mine

BAMAKO, June 11 (Reuters) - Rioters in southern Mali ransacked local government buildings on Monday following a dispute between workers and management at Randgold’s Loulo-Gounkoto gold mine, the ministry of territorial administration said in a statement.

The rioters also burned biometric voter identification cards that were to be used in next month’s presidential election, the statement said.

A Randgold spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting By Tiemoko Diallo; Writing by Aaron Ross; Editing by Catherine Evans)
