State miners stand by the coffin containing the remains of fellow miner Hector Choque as they hold a vigil in La Paz, Bolivia, Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012. Choque died when he was injured during violent clashes that erupted Tuesday when one faction of privately contracted miners threw a small dynamite charge into a crowd of state miners who were protesting on a main road in the Bolivian capital. The two sides have been staging rival protests for months for control of the Colquiri tin mine, south of La Paz. (AP Photo/Juan Karita)
