Bloggers in China are using backward-written text as a means of evading censors while reporting on a riot that took place last weekend.
The troubles in Weng-an County in Guizhou province began following the death of 15-year-old Li Shufen on 22 June. The girl's death was labelled as suicide by authorities, but residents claim she was raped and murdered by people with connections to local officials.
