Bolivian miners clash in La Paz

Rival groups of miners have clashed in Bolivia's main city, La Paz, by throwing sticks of dynamite at each other.

One man was killed and another lost an arm.

Private and public sector miners have been protesting for months, fighting for the right to control part of a recently nationalised huge tin and zinc mine south of the city.
