China ends biggest-ever manhunt with deadly show of its authority as Zhou Kehua is tracked down - Asia - World - The Independent

REPORT: A fugitive described as "China's most dangerous man" was shot dead by police in the south-western city of Chongqing yesterday, ending a four-day manhunt involving thousands of officers and soldiers.

The unusually high-profile chase – followed by the country's media with a level of detail rarely seen – culminated when Zhou Kehua, accused of killing nine people and committing a string of armed robberies, was cornered and killed in an alleyway in the city's Shapingba district.

The Xinhua news agency posted a photograph on its website which was said to show Zhou's body, in a checked shirt and grey trousers, his mobile phone and sunglasses on the ground beside him, and a stream of blood flowing from his head.
