Hundreds of workers at Apple's main iPhone-making factory in China clashed with security personnel, amid rising tensions after almost a month under tough Covid-related restrictions, Bloomberg reports.

According to videos sent by a witness, workers at the Foxconn plant ran out of dormitories on Wednesday, pushing past the white-clad guards they vastly outnumbered. Several people were also beating a person lying on the ground with sticks in another clip.

People were forcing their way past barricades, while several surrounded an occupied police car and began rocking the vehicle while screaming.

The protest started overnight over unpaid wages and fears of spreading infection, according to the witness, asking to remain anonymous for fear of repercussions. Several workers were injured and anti-riot police arrived on the scene Wednesday to restore order, the person added.
