A local official denied a report in state-run media that armed police were dispatched to clear out the workers, saying they left voluntarily after the government persuaded them to go.

…As many as 400 workers for the Linzhou Steel Corporation and their relatives dispersed early Saturday after surrounding the company’s offices since Wednesday, the Linzhou city government said in a notice on its Web site. Anyang city oversees Linzhou city.
