Police, some armed with rifles, faced down hundreds of angry protesters on an area of disputed land, according to video shot on Thursday by the Democratic Voice of Burma, a Norway based media group run by exiles.

There was no violence. But two officers carried what appeared to be a crate of ammunition. The protesters carried signs, one of which read: "This land belongs to the village. No trespassing." Others burned paper coffins bearing the mining company's name, while the crowd cheered.
