Electronics company Foxconn opens doors after deaths


The world's biggest contract electronics maker Foxconn has allowed journalists to view conditions in its factory in southern China where there has been a spate of recent suicides.

The Taiwanese technology giant employs over 400,000 people. It manufactures mobile phones for some of the world's best-known companies, including the Apple iPhone.

The move comes a day after the ninth worker this year leapt to his death at the factory.

Labour activists say employees work under military-style discipline.
