Talks bring progress in protesting Chinese village of Wukan

Residents of a Chinese village locked in a stand-off over land seizures appear to be nearing a compromise with local authorities.

Protests have been simmering in Wukan, in Guangdong province, since September and escalated after the death of a village negotiator in police custody.

Villagers had planned a march through police barriers on Wednesday.
