Death of Disabled Vendor Sparks Riot in Guizhou
(Beijing) – Thousands of angry local residents clashed with city authorities following the death of a disabled fruit vendor, after being allegedly beaten by urban management officials in southwest China's Guizhou Province, according to a report by China Daily on July 27.
The news was first circulated on Chinese microblogs that described the beating of an unidentified fruit vendor by two urban management officers, also known as chengguan, during a raid on illegal street businesses in Anshun City on July 26.
The fruit vendor died in front of the gate of a market at Nanhua Road, Xinxiu District of Anshun City, at about 1:43 pm in the day, which led to the gathering of "a crowd", according to an official statement from the city's emergency relief office on the municipal government's website posted the same day.
