Rampage in China after 'boss kills worker'
Thursday 31 May 2012
About 1,000 migrant workers went on the rampage in the eastern city of Ruian, smashing up cars and protesting in front of a government building after a colleague was apparently killed by his employer.
The protest in the province of Zhejiang was sparked by the death of a 19-year-old migrant worker, allegedly killed by his employer during a dispute over pay, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
The protest ended after the worker's family was given 300,000 yuan (£30,000) in compensation. The employer was arrested.
