French nuclear company Areva’s local business in Niger denounced a 72-hour strike at its Cominak uranium mine as a violation of a previous agreement over bonuses. Workers launched the strike on Monday, demanding the full payment of bonuses they say they are owed for reaching financial targets last year, according to a union leader who said the company had released 70% of the amount.
