Workers at French nuclear group Areva’s Cominak uranium mine in Niger launched a 72-hour strike on Monday claiming they had not received the full payment of bonuses for reaching financial targets last year, two unions said. “Of Cominak’s 800 employees, only nine failed to respect the call to strike this morning,” Miou Amadou, the head of the Cominak section of the Syntramin union, said.
