Rioters surrender after Shenzhen police post images online

FIVE rioters surrendered to police yesterday for smashing cars and beating policemen during a recent anti-Japan protest in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province after police posted their images online, today's Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

One was detained and four others were freed after being admonished, the paper said. They all joined in the September 16 anti-Japanese protest when thousands of people filled a street and damaged a Japanese department store.

The five said they turned themselves in due to pressure from the wanted list police put online. They are among the 20 rioters whose images were recorded by surveillance cameras and put online yesterday.

The five offenders confessed to their violent acts, such as smashing police vehicles, throwing stones at Japanese-made cars, and standing on upturned cars in a display of patriotism.

By 8pm yesterday, police had received 350 calls from local residents offering clues to the suspects. Police are urging 15 other offenders to come forth as early as possible.

China saw many protests last week as the public was enraged by the Japanese government's purchase of the Diaoyu Islands, which belongs to China.
