(Reuters) - Police arrest a protester near Impala Platinum's Rustenburg mine, February 16, 2012, as a month-long strike at the world's second-largest producer of the precious metal turned violent. South African riot police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon on Thursday at hundreds of striking miners who went on the rampage at the plant. Police said one man had been killed overnight after a mob stripped him naked and beat him during a demonstration outside the plant, which accounts for as much as 15 percent of world platinum output.
