Muslims Riot In China’s Henan Province

From the South China Morning Post, via the MEMRI blog:

Hundreds of ethnic Hui Muslim people in the village of Luohe in China’s Henan province have attacked the government headquarters and paralyzed traffic in a protest against the local authorities, according to a Chinese newspaper.

One report said the protests followed the alleged mishandling of an accident in which a Hui villager was injured. Another report noted that the protest erupted after a newspaper report referred to a villager as the “king of pig-raising.”

Conflicts involving the Han and minorities, including the Hui, Uygurs and Tibetans, are highly sensitive in China. According to the report, a villager added: “One should bear in mind that we Muslims would never raise pigs.”
