Chinese police dragged away more than 100 parents Tuesday while they were protesting the deaths of their children in poorly constructed schools that collapsed in last month’s earthquake.
The parents, many holding pictures of their dead children, were pulled down the street away from a courthouse in Dujiangyan, a resort city northeast of the Sichuan provincial capital of Chengdu.
“Why?” some of them yelled. “Tell us something,” they said as black-suited police wearing riot helmets yanked at them.
The parents had been kneeling in front of the courthouse yelling, “We want to sue.”
