Chinese blogger murdered

Chinese government officials(city inspectors) beat to death a Chinese blogger(Wei Wenhua,41) who filmed their confrontation with villager in Central China.

This has created a kind of flaming issue in Chinese Internet Chatrooms and forums condemning the cowardly act. And, this has alarmed the advocates of press freedom.
An international press freedom group, Reporters Without Borders, protested the killing.
"Wei is the first 'citizen journalist' to die in China because of what he was trying to film," the group said in a statement.
"He was beaten to death for doing something which is becoming more and more common and which was a way to expose law-enforcement officers who keep on overstepping their limits."
In the response, it is said government fired all those involved into the incidents and informed further investigations are running.

A scuffle developed when residents tried to prevent trucks from unloading the rubbish, local news(Xinhua) said. And, when Wei took out his cell phone to record the protest, more than 50 municipal inspectors turned on him, attacking him for five minutes. Wei was dead on arrival at a Tianmen hospital, the report said.

It is really a bad news that a blogger is brutally murdered by some government officials.

Few weeks ago, i wrote about Arabian blogger who's whereabouts is still unknown. What's going on, i've no idea. And, contemporary blogger from Nepal, Umesh Shrestha has written dynamic and revolutionary posts depicting real face of then autocratic regime of king. I worry for his well-being because, no one sees whats happening next and I just want to wish him GOOD LUCK and BE SAFE message. The reason for this message is because, bloggers are being targeted for some reasons and more often these days.

i think, it is the same thing we want to do when someone reveals our dirty secret to other people.. u feel like killing that person, maybe...

but this is not good.
not good at all.

yeh,... if they're exposing dirty, then today, no reporters would have been alive.. but thanks, they have unity..
and bloggers?? they don't have any solid unity till date and i think this is the main reason they are being victimized. They are free wanderer who write what they see/feel and ..you know. it's really sad to read stories like this.. no good at all. :(

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
