SANTIAGO, March 24 (Reuters) - Global miner Anglo American said on Monday it was halting operations at its Los Bronces copper mine in central Chile because of a violent protest by contract workers.

Los Bronces, perched high in the Andes near Santiago, produced 416,300 tonnes of copper last year. (Reporting by Alexandra Ulmer; Editing by Steve Orlofsky)
