Driver's death after scuffle leads to riots

Twenty people have been detained by police in Luzhou, Sichuan province, following a riot on Wednesday night that was sparked by the death of a truck driver who was killed in a clash with police, according to a leading official.

"A team consisting of officials from the city's commission for discipline inspection and procuratorate is investigating the case. It will make the results of the investigation available to the public and handle the incident in accordance with the law," said Zhang Wenjun, secretary-general and spokesman of the Luzhou government, at a news conference on Thursday morning.

Zhang said that Gan Junyuan, a driver from Zaozi village in the city's Longmatan district, parked his white truck at about 5:20 pm on Wednesday outside the Hongxingcun Farm Produce Market where he was delivering fish.
