This could get big:
CNN, citing a report by Xinhua, reports that Wei Wenhua (I think the Chinese name is 魏文华, but I’m not completely sure) was beaten to death by China city inspectors after trying to make photos of (or perhaps film) a protest with his mobile phone last Monday. The citizens he was trying to record protested “over the dumping of waste near their homes.” Wenhua was the manager of a construction company and, according to the reports, also a blogger.
