Chinese man to die for killing family planning officials
(06-19 14:51)

China sentenced a man to death for murdering two family planning officials, in a case highlighting the tensions caused by the country's birth restrictions.
A court in Guangxi province found He Shenguo guilty of stabbing the officials to death in Dongxing city last July.
He had ''illegally fathered a fourth child,'' state broadcaster CCTV said. China restricts most couples to having one child under regulations introduced in the late 1970s.--AFP
