World Bulletin / News Desk

Eight people have died after thousands of construction workers building Samsung's new factory in Vietnam's northern Thai Nguyen province clashed with security guards and polices, according to local media.

Between 3-4,000 of the 10,000 workers building the factory went on the rampage, burning containers used by security forces and destroying cars and motorcycles after security guards beat a worker unconscious.

The worker attempted to enter the site without an entrance card when they were stopped by security guards who beat them with an electric baton. 

The Associated Press reports that eleven people were injured in the incident.
