Covid lockdown protest break out in China city after deadly fire – BBC News
Fresh protests have broken out in China over its Covid restrictions, after an apartment block fire killed 10 people in the city of Urumqi.
Authorities have denied that strict Covid rules prevented residents from escaping the fire, which has seemingly sparked further unrest in the country.
Footage shared on Chinese social media appeared to show demonstrators confronting officials, breaking down barriers, and shouting “end the Covid lockdown”.
Beijing continues to pursue a zero-Covid policy, despite record infection numbers and growing public anger.
The western Xinjiang region, including its capital Urumqi, has been under restrictions since early August.
