  • VOA News

On Monday Chinese police arrested as many as 40 parents of Sichuan earthquake victims, who called on the Chinese government to publish the findings of a post earthquake investigation.

Parents accused the local government of inappropriate use of money from school’s construction budget. They believe that their children died because school buildings in the province were built shoddily.

According to Chinese officials, 2008's earthquake killed more than 86 thousands including 5,335 children due to weak school construction.
