Gas canisters were fired at protesters at Goldfields at KDC West mine near Carletonville on Wednesday morning.

Thousands of workers were seen running away from a contingent of security guards.

Security guards were sitting inside their vehicles, wearing gas masks as protesters ran to a nearby stream where they tried to wash out their eyes. - Sapa
