Unrest in Guizhou Province Quashed By Armed Police
A protest consisting of over 10,000 people in southwest China's Guizhou Province was quashed around 2:00 a.m. on Sunday June 29, according to the state-run media.
The unrest was sparked by the local Chinese authorities' cover up of an alleged rape and murder of a 15-year-old female student. Local residents told The Epoch Times similar incidents have happened many times in the past, but criminals were all spared because of their government background.
Angry locals swept and torched the police station, government buildings and dozens of police vehicles. The Chinese regime mobilized around 1,500 armed police from neighboring areas to quash the rioters. According to a Hong Kong media report, at least 200 people were arrested, including 30 high school students.
The report also says at least 3 people died and 150 injured in the clash.
China's state-run media classified the incident as “severe criminal offense,” a challenge to “authorities of law.”
