Standoff Over Land In Guangdong Pits Locals vs. Out-Of-Towners

On the morning of February 22 in Jiexi county, Jinmian, Guangdong province, a gang of outsiders descended on a work site and began smashing cars, equipement, and, in some cases, people. The fighting got so bad that traffic was halted on one stretch of Jianmian Highway. Marvel at the scene, with the banging of brass like drums on an ancient battlefield.

One of the people responsible for the village, Li Baoyu, was fired as a result. Three others have been detained. The dispute was reported over a large chunk of land.

UPDATE, 3/11, 12:40 pm: Li and nine other suspects were arrested, while 21 are still at large.
