Foxconn Technology Group has closed its Taiyuan plant in response to a riot among its workforce, according to a report from the New York Times. Foxconn, one of the leading suppliers of electronics components to the world’s largest technology companies — including Apple Inc. — told the Times that a number of people were hospitalized as a result of the riot; he declined to say whether the Taiyuan plant was responsible for any part of the iPhone 5 production process. A Foxconn spokesman did not immediately return an AllThingsD request for comment.
