A clash between villagers and law enforcement officers over funeral and burial reforms was settled peacefully in Haifeng county, Guangdong province, over the weekend.

Several police officers were slightly injured in the rioting and four police cars plus two other government vehicles were turned over and damaged by the villagers.

"None of the villagers and local residents were hurt during the events," said Xie Liqun, deputy head of the county publicity department.
