Beijing, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) The authorities in North China's Hebei province on Monday reported the arrest of 43 people, including eight officials, for the beating that a gang gave four women in the city of Tangshan.

According to the local prosecutor’s office, the arrests were made in the context of the investigation of the incident, and the main suspect in the attack, which occurred in June, is among the prisoners.

The 15 imprisoned officials, including the director of Tangshan’s Public Security Bureau and officers from different police stations, are accused of having links with criminal organizations, abuse of power, and other corrupt practices.

Meanwhile, the other inmates face charges of opening casinos, robbery, cybercrime activities, and public disorder.
