CHINA: FIRED, 4 MEN CUT OFF THEIR FINGER AND SWALLOW IT
Four Chinese who claim to have been “unjustly fired” cut off a phalanx and swallowed it. The incident occurred on Sunday in Beijing, in front of the Tsinghua University, one of the Country’s best known. The four men were expelled by the police. Attention-calling acts such as these are not new in China and they are the yardstick for the distress experienced by those who have lost their homes or jobs.
