Road built around house in China after owners refuse to sell

 
 

ZHEJIANG, China (REUTERS) - A road was built around a solitary house in China after an elderly couple refused to sign an agreement to allow their house to be demolished.

They say that compensation offered is not enough to cover rebuilding costs, according to local media.

Their house is the only building left standing on the road, which was paved through their village.
