An angry mob has smashed windows and set fire to cars at Freeport McMoRan's huge copper and gold mine in Papua in Indonesia.

The Head of corporate communications at Freeport Indonesia, Daisy Primayanti, says it took place during a prayer service for a senior employee who had died after a lengthy illness.

Reuters reports her as saying no one was injured, and the incident was a tribal dispute.
