India-China dispute: Blogger detained for demeaning soldier 'heroes'
Police in China have arrested a blogger over comments he made about Chinese soldiers who died in a Himalayan border clash with Indian troops last year. The 38-year-old man had "maliciously distorted the truth" about the conflict, said authorities. He is one of at least seven people that China has detained for their allegedly inappropriate remarks on this incident. The incident, which took place last June, was the first deadly clash in the disputed border area in 45 years. A Chinese law passed in 2018 bans people from "slandering heroes and martyrs".
