Dozens Hurt In China Protest

China has suspended the planned building of a waste incinerator in the eastern part of the country,as residents protest against the plan, leading to clashes that injured dozens.

According to state-run Xinhua News Agency, the protest turned violent, with at least 10 demonstrators and 29 police officers getting injured in clashes.

30 vehicles were also overturned, Saturday, as protesters set two police cars on fire and blocked a highway linking Hanzhou with another city in the province.

An official in the city’s Yuhan district government confirmed the incident on Sunday but declined to offer details.

The district government however said in an online statement that construction on the incinerator would not begin until the project had won public support.
