Posting of grisly rumor punished

SHANGHAI police arrested a man who upset many parents by posting online rumors about the supposed violent death of a three-year-old girl.

The 39-year-old man surnamed Xie was caught in the city of Changxing Island on Thursday and punished with a five-day administrative detention for disturbing public order, officials said. Police said Xie wrote on a well-known online forum last Tuesday that the body of a three-year-old girl on Changxing Island had been found with her kidneys removed. The posting frightened many parents on the island, some of whom called police. Police warned people not to post false information online or they may face legal consequences.
