Colombian coal miners began an open-ended strike after wage talks collapsed with their employer, a company owned in part by Britain\'s Anglo American and Australia\'s BHP Billiton. Some 4,000 workers employed directly by Cerrejon, Colombia\'s largest coal exporter, and another 7,000 subcontractors began the walkout, said union representative Igor Diaz Lopez.

The Cerrejon mine, located in northern Colombia on the border with Venezuela, is one of the world\'s largest open pit coal mines. Last year, 34.6 million tonnes of coal were extracted from the site.
