SHANGHAI - Eleven people have been jailed for their roles in riots that hit a city in the southern Chinese export hub of Guangdong province last month, state media said on Saturday.

The riots in mid-June, which were sparked by the abuse of a pregnant migrant street hawker, flared over three days and saw rampaging mobs smash and burn government offices, pelt police with stones and bottles and overturn scores of vehicles.

A court in the city of Zengcheng on Thursday sentenced five people to terms ranging from a year and a half to nearly six years, the official Xinhua news agency said.

That followed the sentencing of six other people to terms from nine months to three-and-a-half years on Monday, it said.
