Anglo American Platinum - the world's largest platinum producer, has sacked up to 12,000 miners in South Africa for staging what the company said unlawful strike.
The industrial action has also spread to other mining industries with over 75,000 miners striking across the country.
South Africa, which produces an estimated 75 per cent of the world's platinum supply, has been facing labour unrest in recent weeks over the issue of pay rise.
