Developers Demolish Stairways To Evict Family on the Seventh Floor

When Mum Zhao Yanhong refused to leave her seventh story apartment, developers in Mianyang, China demolished every staircase in the apartment complex.
Mum Zhao Yanhong, 42, claims developers - who want to demolish the flats in Mianyang, south west China, to build a factory - hired thugs to force out other residents but she refused to budge.

"Then one day they turned up with machines and men and knocked out all the stairs to strand us here. They are just trying to bully us out of our home," said Yanhong. "The only way we can get out now is through ladders and climbing but it is very dangerous," she added.

Judges have ordered them to suspend all work for six months while they investigate and restore one staircase for Yanhong's family.
