Mobs of striking coal miners stormed through police lines Thursday, attacking riot troops with clubs and homemade explosives. Dozens of police were taken hostage and one was reported killed as the miners refused to stop their march on the capital. More than 130 people were injured and up to 50 police kidnapped in the fierce assault as 7,000 miners overran government roadblocks on a central highway leading to Bucharest.
