'Nail House' in middle of road is finally demolished

Authorities have demolished a five-story home that stood incongruously in the middle of a new main road and had become the latest symbol of resistance by Chinese homeowners against officials accused of offering unfair compensation. Xiayangzhang village chief Chen Xuecai said the house was bulldozed after its owners, duck farmer Luo Baogen and his wife, agreed to accept compensation of 260,000 yuan (€32,000).
