Benjamin Kang Lim: Thousands of villagers riot in China

From Reuters:

Thousands of villagers rioted in eastern China, injuring dozens of police, after two of about 200 elderly women protesting over factory pollution died during efforts to disperse them, residents and officials said on Monday.

The rioting on Sunday in village, Dongyang city, in the wealthy coastal province of Zhejiang coincided with violent anti-Japanese protests in China’s capital, Beijing, and the southern cities of Guangzhou and Shenzhen over the weekend.
