Reuters reported rival miners from Bolivia’s Colquiri tin mine, hurled sticks of dynamite and rocks at each other in La Paz on Tuesday, injuring at least seven people in an hour-long street battle.

As quoted in the market news:

Leftist President Evo Morales had seized control of the mine in June in a bid to end a conflict between unionized workers and independent miners.

The government took over operations at Colquiri after miners fought for weeks over control of the site, located about 200 km (125 miles) south of La Paz. The state takeover drew an angry response from the mine’s former owner, global commodities trader Glencore.
