Villagers call off action unless dam resumes

“Residents of Sichuan province’s county, the scene of violent clashes over a hydroelectric dam, said they would stop holding protests unless construction of the project resumed.

A villager from Dashu township yesterday said local television reported that the central government had ordered a halt to the Pubugou project, after riots last week left two villagers dead.

However, authorities in Chengdu , Yaan and Hanyuan county refused to verify the report. ”
