Ten people, detained after village clashes in March that killed one person and injured nine in south China's Hainan Province, will be formally arrested, prosecutors said Friday.
Three face charges of intentionally causing fatal injuries and the other seven are charged with gathering with intention to assault, according to the Dongfang Municipal People's Procuratorate.
The prosecutors provided few details, saying only that one of the 10 was surnamed Mai.
Thousand of villagers were involved in violent clashes between Gancheng Village and Baoshang Village in Dongfang City, Hainan, starting March 23.
Direct losses were estimated at more than 1 million yuan (about147,000 U.S. dollars). The violence led to power being cut off in the region and the closure of some schools and shops.
