'Hellish' thieves

TWO robbers have been jailed in Jiangsu Province for stealing a suitcase full of "hell money" -- fake paper bills burned to honor dead spirits. The robbers surnamed Hu and Jia, both aged 20 from Hunan Province, were sentenced to three-and-a-half years and four years in jail respectively. They met a man who bragged about how much money he had in a suitcase at a card room in Jiangyin County. But when they stole his bag, they found it contained mostly "hell money."
