"Drunk" policeman's crash sparks protest in China

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese authorities have arrested a police officer suspected of drunk driving after he crashed a vehicle and killed five people, setting off protests by local residents, media reports said on Sunday.

The policeman in Runan county, in the poor central province of Henan, has been charged with "endangering public security by dangerous means" after crashing his police van into two street lamp poles, crushing five people to death, the official Xinhua news agency said.

"He is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol," it quoted a government statement as saying. Three people were injured and remain in hospital.

The Southern Metropolis Daily said that local people, unhappy with the way police had handled the incident, overturned and smashed up vehicles which arrived to remove the bodies.

The brief Xinhua report made no mention of any protest and officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Users of China's popular Twitter-like microblogging service, Sina Weibo, posted graphic pictures of some of the dead, and streets clogged with onlookers.

In one picture, two mini buses had been overturned. Reuters was not able to independently verify their authenticity.

"The county's public security bureau has set up a special group to investigate the incident," Xinhua said.

It added that the policeman could be sentenced to death if found guilty.

Protests in China have become relatively common over corruption, pollution, wages, and illegal land grabs that local officials attempt to justify in the name of development.

But the ruling Communist Party is sensitive to any threat to its hold on power following the unrest that has swept the Arab world and ahead of a leadership transition next year, when President Hu Jintao is expected to step down as party head.

A town in eastern China erupted in protests last week, set off by a tax dispute.

Soft Landing ?

I suggest you get a better idea by talking to friends who operate factories in China, or run sourcing and trading companies in Hong Kong.

In the past three months, their business has declined fast. For exporters, the days ahead are uncertain

DJ PBOC Adviser Li: China Inflation To Drop To 2.8% In 2012 - Report

BEIJING (Dow Jones)--China's consumer price index growth may drop sharply to 2.8% in 2012, the Beijing Times reported Monday, citing a central bank adviser.

Li Daokui, an academic adviser to China's central bank, forecast China's inflation will be 5.5% this year, the newspaper reported.

China's inflation is cyclical, and price rises for agricultural products are set to fall next year, which will help reduce inflationary pressures, he said.

China's consumer price index eased to 6.1% in September on a year-on-year basis, slowing from August's 6.2% increase and July's 6.5% rise, which was the fastest in more than three years.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Saturday that the government will continue to take measures to maintain price stability, and will "fine tune" economic policies at an appropriate time and by an appropriate degree.

China land grab disputes spread west, hit new high

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Rural land grab disputes are hitting new highs in China and spreading to the undeveloped west of the country, according to a country-wide survey published in a state-run magazine.

Rising discontent over forced demolitions and corruption has increased anxieties among officials determined to defend one-party rule and make the transition to a younger generation of leaders as smooth as possible.

In September, thousands of villagers in the southern Chinese region of Lufeng rioted and ransacked government offices in a major flareup of violence over brazen land requisitions.

Land disputes are now among the most explosive issues facing China today, as rising land prices provide a massive incentive for corruption and lead to patronage networks of officials and businessmen eager to procure more farmland for development.

Official statistics on China's rural conflicts are hard to come by, but a former deputy editor-in-chief of the official party newspaper, the People's Daily, said the number of "mass incidents" in China, an official euphemism for social disorder, was consistently above 90,000 per year from 2007 to 2009.

China invokes Waco siege in denouncing Dalai Lama

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese state media denounced the Dalai Lama Monday for his views on reincarnation, saying that the exiled Buddhist monk was trying to revise history, compounding his crimes as a separatist.

China contends that it has the final say in all reincarnations of living Buddhas, or senior religious figures in Tibetan Buddhism, and that it has to sign off on the selection of the next Dalai Lama.

To help make its point, the commentary borrowed from recent American history, when U.S. federal agents raided the headquarters of David Koresh's Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas, amid allegations of child abuse, statutory rape and underage marriage.

"At that time, David Koresh called himself Jesus, ensnared large groups of followers, publicly opposed national law, and in 1993 he was eliminated by federal agents who even used tanks," the paper said.

Ten people have set fire to themselves in Tibetan parts of China in recent months, mostly in Aba in Sichuan, in protest against Chinese rule and what they say are restrictions on their culture and faith.

China orders Ai Weiwei to pay $2.4 million for "tax evasion"

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has ordered dissident artist Ai Weiwei to pay 15 million yuan ($2.4 million) in back taxes and fines allegedly due from the company he works for, Ai said on Tuesday, a case supporters said was part of Beijing's efforts to muzzle government critics.

The 54-year-old artist, famous for his work on the "Bird's Nest" Olympic Stadium in Beijing, was detained without charge for two months this year in a move that drew criticism from Western governments. He was released in late June.
