More Violence in Guangxi

Violence flares again in China over 'one-child' policy
Thousands of villagers in southern China have attacked government offices and fought police in renewed violence over a harsh population control crackdown, witnesses and state press reported on Wednesday.

The clashes took place on Tuesday in at least three towns in Guangxi region, which this month has seen repeated riots over abuses by authorities implementing China's so-called "one-child" policy.

The worst of the new unrest appeared to have flared in the town of Yangmei, where several thousand people surrounded the local government headquarters and the family planning office on Tuesday, said a resident who witheld her name for fear of official reprisals.
