Coal lines to South Africa terminal halted by violent protests

Rail operations that transport coal to South Africa’s Richards Bay Coal Terminal (RBCT) have been halted because of violent community protests, state-run logistics group Transnet said on Thursday.

“Transnet has experienced interruptions to operations on the Richards Bay Coal Line as a result of violent community protests … The protests relate to community demands for jobs and business opportunities,” Transnet said in a statement.

RBCT, which moves coal on behalf of producers and shareholders such as Exxaro and Anglo American, exported 72.6 million tonnes of coal last year.
