A Different Kind of Fight in China

ESWN translates and sums up the reporting from 5 newspapers on a different kind of “mass incident” in Zhanjiang, China. More than 500 villagers were involved in a fight with shots fired and bombs thrown. More than 20 were injured. Unlike like other “mass incidents” against the totalitarian government, in this case “a more open society has allowed the tradition [village feuds] to return”.
