NINE township and village officials in southwest China's Sichuan Province have been detained after beating staff of a hotel in south China's Hainan Province during their vacation, injuring eight hotel staff and a police officer.

Eight officials have been detained for five days over disrupting social order while one was detained for disturbing public service, today's West China Metropolis Daily reported.

The brawl occurred on November 29 when 18 officials from Xiaogan Town in Sichuan's Deyang City got into a dispute over a free shuttle bus with staff of the hotel in Sanya, the report said, quoting Sanya police.

Some of the officials, allegedly led by Xiaogan's Party Secretary Huang Zongwen, ran into a fight with the hotel porters, security guards and managers. Eight hotel staff and one police officer were injured.
