About 1,000 migrant workers went on the rampage in the eastern city of Ruian, smashing up cars and protesting in front of a government building after a colleague was apparently killed by his employer.

The protest in the province of Zhejiang was sparked by the death of a 19-year-old migrant worker, allegedly killed by his employer during a dispute over pay, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

The protest ended after the worker's family was given 300,000 yuan (£30,000) in compensation. The employer was arrested.
