China detainees accident prone

Picking at pimples with a needle is a bad idea, especially when the needle is eight inches long:

Yu died in Gaocun town, Wendeng City, Shandong province. His family found small holes in his chest, which the detention centre claimed were caused by his picking at acne. An autopsy revealed he was killed by repeated stabbing with a needle-like object.

Washing your face is also dangerous:

A man died in the Gong'an County lock-up in Jingzhou, Hubei, from "drowning in the face-washing basin".

In comparison the Guantanamo detention facility is a holiday resort.

"While revealing shocking information about China's penal system, its very publication domestically holds out the prospect of reform"

The Australian apparently sees this as prospect of reform?

Are they joking? Are they doing a Monty Python? This is the paper that gives Habib et al. text space for their horrific 'ordeal' in Gitmo.
