The Mexican authorities say one policeman was killed and several others
were injured in clashes with protesting farmers in the southern state of

Officials said the violence broke out when police used tear gas to break up
a demonstration by about two hundred indigenous farmers who were protesting
against low coffee prices.

The farmers then attacked the police with sticks and stones.

The incident occurred in the village of Yajalon, close to areas controlled
by Zapatista rebels, who launched an uprising in 1994 to demand greater
respect for the rights of Chiapas' indigenous Maya population.
