A Chinese court is taking the rare step of letting a local TV station broadcast the trial of a farmer charged with stabbing 10 people to death at a Taoist temple, a news report said Saturday. Qiu Xinhua, 47, goes on trial Thursday in the northwestern city of Ankang in Shaanxi province, the newspaper Beijing News reported. "The trial will be fully covered by Ankang Television Station," the newspaper said. It didn't say whether the broadcasts would be live or whether some portions of the trial might be blacked out. China's state-controlled media have sharply increased coverage of trials in recent years as the communist government tries to assure the public it is stamping out crime, corruption and official abuses.
