Eleven people have appeared in court following an attack at the Palabora Mining Company in Phalaborwa, Limpopo.

They were apprehended on Friday night following violent protests in the area, police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said.

"Community members went on the rampage and torched the offices of the mine and a motor vehicle. Afterwards, the suspects continued to vandalise the main gate and took some valuable items, such as computers," Mojapelo said.
