An angry crowd has torched police and government offices in southern China amid allegations of a cover-up over a teenage girl’s death.

Her body was found in a nearby river. Authorities said she had killed herself.

But local residents believe she was raped and murdered by a relative and a senior government official and that the case was covered up.

At least one protestor has died in violent riots sparked by the incident.
