Farmers confront riot police at the site of the Letpadaung copper-mine near Monywa in northwestern Myanmar Monday, Dec. 22, 2014. A woman was fatally shot Monday during a crackdown on protesters at the controversial Chinese-backed copper mine, activists and an opposition lawmaker said. Khin San Hlaing, a lawmaker from the National League for Democracy party, said the confrontation at the Letpadaung copper-mine project, a joint venture between a Myanmar military-controlled holding company and China's Wanbao Mining Copper Ltd., occurred as police and Chinese workers erected a fence on land that the villagers claimed as theirs.
