“The situation quickly escalated out of control with up to one thousand workers joining the fray, throwing trash bins, chairs, pots, bottles and fireworks from the upper floors of the bulding to the ground and destroying public facilities. The dorm administrators reported the case to the local public security bureau, bringing hundreds of police officers to suppress the riot, which ended after two hours.”
