The days of comfortably crossing the border between Hong Kong and Shenzhen in a car are coming to an end.
One of the most popular ways for foreigners in China to go between Hong Kong and Shenzhen has been by car. Shared vans were plentiful and could be hired on either side of the border, from the airport, or even via door-to-door service.
On Thursday October 12th, 2017; however, passengers crossing the Huanggang Border in Futian District of Shenzhen began complaining on social media that they were forced out of their cars and made to go through the customs and immigration check on foot.

A group of Chinese parents turned to violence at a shopping mall playground on October 7th after seeing their children fighting over a toy. Watch as fathers and mothers kick, punch and drag each other by their hair as their kids look on and cry. No security guards were in sight as four men corner one man, hit him with a stool and apparently knock him out.
