Beijing building burial

In the Chinese city of Zhengzhou, part of Hospital No. 4 has been demolished.

The hospital disliked a road expansion project that meant knocking down part of its structure.

So the builders went ahead anyway, burying under rubble six bodies being processed in the mortuary, and forcing hospital workers to scurry away.

The Huiji district government in Zhengzhou said it sent in the bulldozer only after the hospital turned a deaf ear; it said the workers checked that no-one was inside before they tore the buildings down.
