BEIJING (AP) -- Hundreds of steel workers in central China trapped a government official in their factory's office compound for four days, angry at the official's role in the state-run plant's privatization, the local government said Saturday.
A local official denied a report in state-run media that armed police were dispatched to clear out the workers, saying they left voluntarily after the government persuaded them to go.
"No conflict broke out during the protest, which was related to the restructuring of the steel company," the official, surnamed Zhang, with Anyang city in Henan province, told The Associated Press.
As many as 400 workers for the Linzhou Steel Corporation and their relatives dispersed early Saturday after surrounding the company's offices since Tuesday, the Linzhou city government said in a notice on its Web site. Anyang city oversees Linzhou city.
