Riot in south China after death of fruit vendor

BEIJING - Angry residents in a southern Chinese city went on the rampage after officials apparently beat to death a disabled fruit vendor, a state media said on Wednesday, in the latest incident of social unrest in the world's second-largest economy.
The China Daily said that thousands of people gathered on the streets of Anshun in Guizhou province on Tuesday afternoon, throwing stones at police and overturning a government vehicle.
The riot was sparked after urban management officers -- a quasi-police force that enforces laws against begging and other petty offenses -- were suspected of beating the vendor to death, the newspaper said.
Xinhua news agency said around 30 protesters and 10 police officers were injured in the unrest.
