A Sapa reporter who was on the scene said the body was lying face upwards 100 metres away from a hilltop where workers gathered earlier on Tuesday.

The man was wearing khaki clothes.

Nine other people - two police officers, two security guards, three protesters and two other men - have been killed in violent protests at the mine since Friday. - Sapa
