Nanjing official held over savage attack on nurse
(03-06 17:00)

A couple who are both Chinese government officials have been detained or sacked for beating a nurse in eastern Jiangsu Province, the Nanjing public security bureau said.
The nurse who works for Nanjing Stomatological Hospital was attacked during a medical dispute on February 24. The attack left her paralyzed in her lower limbs.
The incident followed the hospital arranging for a critically ill male patient to be placed in the same ward where the couple's daughter was being treated. After the couple unsuccessfully protested about the move, Yuan Yaping, the mother, struck a nurse on the back and shoulder with an umbrella and dragged her out.
In the meantime, Dong Anqing, Yuan's husband, pushed and shoved other medical workers who attempted to stop the violence.
Yuan, 53, deputy curator of the provincial technology and science museum, has been detained by police. Dong, also 53, publicity department head of the provincial people's procuratorate, has been dismissed from his post.—Xinhua
