A worker has committed suicide at Foxconn Technology Group's south China manufacturing complex, the company said, the latest in a string of young migrant workers who have died at its factories this year.

The company, a key manufacturer of iPhones and iPads for Apple and computer gadgets for other global brands like Hewlett Packard and Dell, said a 23-year-old male employee was found dead early yesterday outside a dormitory. Labour rights groups say there were at least 13 suicides at Foxconn's factories across China this year before Friday's death.
