Hundreds of workers and activists hurled rocks and firebombs at police to protest the breaking of a strike at South Korea's largest nylon plant.

At dawn, 3,600 riot police backed by bulldozers stormed the Hyosung plant. Eight workers and 36 police officers were injured in the clash in Ulsan, 200 miles southeast of Seoul.

Workers at the plant began striking May 24 after management relocated 14 workers whose jobs were no longer needed.
