The World

Black South African miners who struck the world’s second-largest gold mine ended a three-day walkout and returned to their jobs, Anglo American Corp., the mine owner, said. The company added that the strike at Vaal Reefs mine, 100 miles west of Johannesburg, ended with no concessions to the strikers’ demand for the release from jail of nine miners arrested last week in an attack on eight senior black employees at one of the mine’s residential hostels. Four of the supervisors died, and Anglo American said it was “determined to see that the due course of the law is followed.”
