Dozens hurt in China during protest

BEIJING — A protest in eastern China over a plan to build a waste incinerator has turned violent with state media reporting at least 10 demonstrators and 29 police injured in clashes.

State-run Xinhua News Agency says 30 vehicles were overturned as protesters on Saturday set two police cars on fire and blocked a highway linking Hanzhou with another city.

One protester and a policeman have been reported seriously injured.

An official in the city’s Yuhan district government confirmed the incident Sunday but would not offer details.

An online statement posted by the district government says construction on the incinerator would not begin until the project had won public support.
