China police detain protesters at Bo Xilai's trial venue
JINAN (AFP) - Protesters gathered outside a courthouse in eastern China on Wednesday in hopes of taking advantage of the media frenzy surrounding the country's highest-profile case in decades, the trial of ousted politician Bo Xilai.
Police detained several demonstrators trying to attract attention to their own causes, escorting a elderly woman wearing a paper hat labelled "Injustice" away from the court in Jinan.
"I want to see if China's courts are fair or not. Are they only unfair to people like us or to everyone?" said another woman, Lin Xiuli, 43.
Ms Lin said she had applied to attend Bo's trial, and came to see "what the difference is between cases for top officials and for us regular people".
