Seven people from Jiangsu collapsed in front of the China Youth Daily office in Beijing this morning after drinking pesticide.
According to eyewitnesses, the five women and two men gulped down bottles of pesticide and collapsed outside the China Youth Daily office with bubbles foaming in their mouth. They were then sent to different hospitals. According to News Sina reports, 3 out of the 7 are in critical condition.
The 7 people reportedly had an argument with the local government about demolition compensation. The police are currently looking into the issue.
