A man in Beijing was detained by police for spreading an online rumor that more than 200 organ traffickers came to Beijing to steal children, cnr.cn reported on Monday.
The man, surnamed Zhang, saw a similar rumor online and failed to verify that it was true. Thinking it was fun, Zhang changed the site from another province to Beijing and shared the rumor with his friends by his mobile phone.
Zhang was detained for disturbing the social order and the case is under further investigation.
