Man Murders Parents And 17 Others After Argument

A man has confessed to singlehandedly killing 19 people in Yema, a Chinese village, after an altercation ensued with his parents over money.

The mass killing took place in the village of Yema in China’s mountainous Yunnan Province.

The Xinhua news agency, quoting police, said Yang Qingpei first murdered his mother and father, then went on a killing spree of their neighbours to prevent them reporting his crime.

A list of the victims’ names circulating online showed they included 11 males and eight females, with the youngest a three-year-old girl and the oldest 72.

Four names were minors under 18.

Yunnan police said 27-year-old Yang was arrested more than 120 miles away in the provincial capital of Kunming after 33 hours of “arduous investigation”.

But video footage circulating online reportedly from Yema itself showed police and heavily armed officers walking the streets and a young man in jeans handcuffed on the ground.

A working group has been sent to the scene of the murders by the Ministry of Public Security to oversee the case.
