Get poisoned in China go to jail

More than 50 villagers suffering from lead poisoning have been in custody for six months after the bus taking them to the doctor was stopped by police.

Chinese authorities have defended the six-month detention of lead poisoning victims who were seeking medical care, saying the punishment was necessary for "public education".
