China circumcision ends murderously


A Chinese man “dissatisfied” with his circumcision is suspected of killing a doctor at the hospital where the procedure was carried out.

Wang Fangli, 45, who underwent the surgical procedure last week, stabbed to death Shan Erhui in the doctors’ lounge of a hospital in the eastern province of Jiangsu on Tuesday, Xinhua News Agency said Wednesday.

It was not clear whether Shan was the doctor who performed the operation, or why Wang had it carried out. Circumcisions are not common in China.
