Editor Of Chinese Paper Beaten by Police

In another example of China’s ongoing human rights violations a Chinese editor has died as a result of a police beating he received for his paper’s reporting on corruption, journalists and rights groups say.

The editor was reportedly attacked by some 50 policemen after his paper accused them of charging illegal bicycle fees.

China’s media have reported a string of torture and coercion cases by police. Also typical of the human rights situation in China is the Chinese media silence in reporting the death.
