Zambia drops case against Chinese bosses who shot 13 miners 

WHAT: As many expected, Zambian prosecutors dropped all charges against two Chinese supervisors who shot 13 coal miners during a wage protest last year.

HOW:
The managers fired shotguns into a yelling crowd of demonstrators. Nobody was killed and the government paid off the wounded miners so they wouldn’t press charges.

WHO’S ANGRY:
Zambians deeply resent the enormous economic influence China has over their country — an investment of more than $1 billion yearly.
