Two people dead, 118 injured because of a rape lie

Another example of the price of a false rape claim. Two people are dead, countless injured because of a rape lie.

Rape rumor triggered China factory riot

BEIJING, June 28 (UPI) -- Chinese police have arrested a disgruntled former factory worker they say triggered a riot that left two people dead and 118 injured.

The worker was held for allegedly posting a false report on a Web site claiming two girls had been raped by a half-dozen men at the Xuri Toy Factory in Shaoguan City in Guangdong province in southern China.

The posting led to a Thursday night confrontation between hundreds of workers from the Xuri plant and employees from another factory in Xinjiang, the Xinhua news agency reported Sunday.

Xinhua said further investigation turned up no reports of any sexual assaults. Police determined the former worker had posted the rumor after quitting his job and failing to be rehired.
