Dongzhou Situation

For those trying to keep up with the situation in Dongzhou a few days back, here is a roundup of roundups.
Additionally, Peking Duck has a series of posts on the subject (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

An excerpt from the Pajamas Media post:
Allegations continued that Chinese authorities were attempting to cover up a massacre of demonstrators in South China by buying the bodies, Associated Press reported, while the government insisted only a handful had perished and The Epoch Times released audiotape of villagers stating that 70 are dead... The Canadian Press is reporting that officials in China attempted to blame "a few instigators" who they claim attacked a power plant on Tuesday with "knives, steel spears, sticks, dynamite" and other alleged devices. Daimnation! has the story of the village being "completely sealed off."

Update: The official version of events is out.
