JAKARTA - PT Freeport Indonesia, a unit of US miner Freeport McMoRan , said on Monday a pipe transporting copper concentrate at its copper and gold mine in Papua island has been cut.

The company's spokesman did not elaborate.

Freeport is facing a prolonged strike at its giant Grasberg mine, and three men were killed last week though it was not clear if the shooting was linked to that dispute or to a simmering independence movement in the remote region.

Before that, a clash between striking workers and police near the mine killed one protester and injured others, complicating the dispute over pay and working conditions.
