Folk Festival Sends Beggars into Cages

Beggars at a religious folk festival in southern China have been ordered to stay in purposely built cages, or be removed from the festivities.Organisers gave the beggars an ultimatum saying their presence ruins the experience for visitors at the temple fair in Nanchang, Jiangxi province and if they wished to beg they had to do so from inside small cages.The zoo-like cages are so small adults are unable to stand and although they are free to leave at will, they are immediately banished from the festival area and have to leave the town if they do so.
