10, Chinese rocker detained for gang links
In early November, news broke that Chinese rock singer Zang Tianshuo had been detained by Beijing police on suspicion of heading a criminal gang that was involved in a series of gang fights which led to one person's death five years ago in Langfang. Since the case has as complicated a plot and as many gangs involved as a Hollywood movie, Beijing police have been dealing with the case secretly. Zang will stand public trial early next year. In his most popular song "Friend", Zang once sang the line "Friend, have you ever thought about me?" - but now we all know who your friends are.
