In Jun 9th, an attempt to takeover mine Sayaquira caused $400K loss in machinery, goods destroyed and stolen processed tin ores. This problem started in April 11, 2011. Today, a dead person was reported, as again a mob (around 200 people) wanted to takeover the mine by force. There were around 100 workers with the aid of around 40 policemen that repelled the attack.
