CHINA-RIGHTS-POLITICS-CORRUPTION

In this photo taken on March 2, 2013 a resident cycling between smashed and overturned cars after civil unrest in the village of Shangpu in China’s southern Guangdong province. Villagers in southern China were locked in a stand-off with authorities on March 3 and were demanding democratic polls after a violent clash with thugs linked to a local official over a land transfer. Just over a week ago, residents of Shangpu in Guangdong province fought with scores of attackers whom they claimed were sent by the village communist party chief and a business tycoon after they protested against a land deal.
