Francis Markus: China riot village draws tourists

From the BBC:

A Chinese village has become a tourist attraction after residents fought a pitched battle with police, who retreated after dozens were injured…

The unrest is one of a series of recent outbursts of frustration and anger in rural China, over various issues.

Residents say tens of thousands of people from nearby towns and cities have flocked each day to visit the site of last Sunday’s confrontation, in the village of Huaxi, in eastern China’s Zhejiang province.

Thousands of angry villagers forced a huge contingent of police to beat a humiliating retreat.
