Suspects in killing of Taiwanese caught
GUANGZHOU: Police have detained four murder suspects after a province-wide investigation.
The extensive manhunt was launched after the murder of a Taiwan resident in Guangdong.
The four were seized in the Zhuhai Special Economic Zone that borders Macao Special Administrative Region, and arrested.
Police say they are still hunting three other suspects following an attack at a hotel last weekend which left one man dead and another seriously injured.
The dead man and the injured victim - who is still receiving medical treatment - are Taiwan residents and employees of the Taiwan-based Far Eastern Air Transport Co Ltd.
It is believed the pair were embroiled in a dispute with mainlanders over counterfeit money.
A senior police officer from Guangdong Provincial Bureau of Public Security said Guangdong police would investigate the case to its "fullest extent."
Officers were called to the hotel in the Jida District of the city at 5:50 am last Saturday.
They found two men seriously wounded in their room.
One victim, in his 30s, died at the scene and the other, 48, was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment, a police officer told China Daily yesterday.
