Tanzanians sue Canada’s Barrick Gold over alleged abuses at mine

Tanzanian villagers accuse Canadian mining giant of being complicit in killings and torture at the North Mara gold mine.

A group of Tanzanian villagers is suing Canadian mining giant Barrick Gold over alleged police killings, torture and other abuses at a gold mine in northwestern Tanzania.

The claim, filed in the Superior Court of Justice in Ontario, Canada on Wednesday, accuses the world’s second-biggest gold miner of being complicit in extrajudicial killings by police guarding its North Mara facility, located about 30km (18 miles) from the border with Kenya.
