Guangzhou E-Bike Owners Protest Police Confiscations
Hundreds of angry residents gathered outside a police station in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou on Friday after police impounded more than 100 electric bicycles in their district, protesters said.
Police in the city's Haizhu district fled after running into an angry crowd during a confiscation campaign aimed at enforcing a ban on the bikes which was first announced in 2007, local people tweeted to Chinese social media services.
Several hundred protesters then surrounded the local police station, calling for their bikes to be returned. Police later allowed people to take their bikes home again, residents said.
