Angry villagers in Jiangxi, southern China, have attacked a mobile base station under construction because they feared it would destroy 'dragons.'
A man who smashed the base station equipment with a wooden club during the attack in mid-June has been taken into custody, website C114 reports.
The residents of Mao village in Guangfeng district, Shangrao, had objected to the new tower, sited on a hillside, because they believed its transmissions would harm their health and destroy the fengshui 'dragons' in the hill.
The entire base station, under construction by the new state-owned tower company, China Communications Facilities Services Corp, required rebuilding after the attack. Police said the equipment had incurred 7,934 yuan ($1277) in damages.
