A man who stabbed to death his high school classmate, who was a postgra?亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机419论坛女神会所
duate at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Beijing about a year ago was sentenced to death on Friday.
The Beijing No 1 Intermediate People’s Court pronounced the capital punis
hment sentence to Zhou Kaixuan for the crime of intentional homicide after it heard the case on May 24.?亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机419论坛
According to the ruling, Zhou and the victim, Xie Diao, were classmates in a Chongq
ing high school. They quarreled when attending a class reunion party in their hometown in January 2016.
?亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机419论坛Due to the grudge, Zhou killed Xie in Beijing in June last year by stabbing Xie in the back
and chest with a knife he’d been carrying. “Although the defendant turned himself over to police, we didn’t de
cide to leniently penalize him for his extremely cruel behaviors,” the court added in the ruling.?亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机419论坛女神会所
Wang Zhiyuan, Zhou’s lawyer, said he will ask his client whether to appeal to a hig
her court, as Zhou did not show any emotion after the judgment was announced.
?亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机419论坛Standing behind Zhou in the courtroom’s public gallery, Xie’s mother began
crying when she heard the sentence. Xie’s father, Xie Zhonghua, told China Daily tha

“The judgment was made in line with the law, and Zhou deserved such a penalty,”
Xie Zhonghua said. Last year he took to the streets and publicized the case to get justic?亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机419论坛女神会所
e in the city. “So far, Zhou has not apologized to our child, let alone our family,” he said.

Dubbing Chinese movies and TV plays has become a key area of cultural exchanges and cooperation between China and Mongolia in recent years.
China has decided to provide Mongolia with 25 films and TV dramas for free from 2014 to 2020. Other p
rojects such as “Silk Road Film and TV Project” have also introduced Chinese video products to Mongolia.亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机后花园

Kan Hui was determined not to be late. So she turned up early at 5:30 am to be precise. “I am pr

When the hall’s door finally swung open at 8:40 am, Kan dashed with a speed normally as亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机千花坊
sociated with Olympic sprinters, with the rest of the crowd, to buy her favorite designer toys. The loud
speaker crackled with warnings about safety and the need to ensure an orderly entrance. All to no avail.
The crowd was bombarding the exhibits of more than 300 designers from China, Japan, S亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机千花坊女神会所

亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机千花坊More than 30 specialist designers joined the show for the first time this year.
One of the most popular designers was Kasing Lung from Hong Kong, whose latest series
was on limited release. His cute and funny creation is named Labubu, who smiles and shows off his fangs.
Kan, a senior stage set designer based in Beijing, wanted to buy a Labu亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机千花坊女神会所

“I did some ‘homework’ searching online before I came. There are亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机千花坊
so many people hoping to buy the toys. It depends on luck,” says Kan.
Kan came to the event along with four friends, who are all big fans of designer toys. One of them亚博国际登录网站—亚博娱乐用户登录手机千花坊女神会所
is Wang Mei, who started collecting designer toys in 2017 and now boasts a collection of more than 1,000.
“It’s a great way to socialize with people,” says Wang, 36. “We share inf
