Chinese anger at murder of baby in carjacking


The case of a baby killed after the car in which he was sleeping was stolen has sparked outrage in China.

Earlier this week, a man stole a car parked outside a shop in Changchun, in Jilin province, and headed to the motorway.

Jilin police say when the thief, Zhou Xijun, realised that there was a baby on the back seat he strangled the two-month-old and buried him in the snow.

He gave himself up on Tuesday after a manhunt involving more than 3,500 policemen and media appeals.
