500 police sent in to quell mass protest by migrants

More than 500 police officers in Putian , Fujian , were sent to quell hundreds of angry Sichuan migrant workers who blocked a key crossing on Monday night, the Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy said. The confrontation was triggered by a traffic accident that killed two Sichuan migrants workers from a shoe factory, the Hong Kong-based centre said. Minnie Chan
