Police has detained a former worker at a toy factory for posting a Web rumor that triggered a mass brawl in south China's Guangdong Province.

The fight Thursday night was between hundreds of local workers and workers from the northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region at the Xuri Toy Factory in Shaoguan City. The brawl left two Xinjiang workers dead and another 118 injured.

A post on a local Web site that said "Six Xinjiang boys raped two innocent girls at the Xuri Toy Factory" caused the brawl, a municipal government spokesman said.

Police found that the former worker of Xuri, surnamed Zhu, faked the information to express his discontent as Zhu failed to get re-employed after quitting the job.

Police found no rape cases at the Xuri Toy Factory.

More than 60 injured were still in hospital and the 14 critically injured were in stable condition, doctors said.
