REPORTING FROM BEIJING — Muslim villagers exploded in anger as Chinese authorities demolished a refurbished mosque scheduled for an opening ceremony Jan. 1, villagers and a human rights organization said.
At least two people were reported killed in a clash between villagers and authorities Friday, with some reports out of Hong Kong suggesting the death toll was as high as five. The incident took place in a village called Taoshan in the Ningxia region of north-central China.
