Online Users Demand Police Investigate Attack On Boy, 9

Online Users Demand Police Investigate Attack On Boy, 9

This is the face of Ma Yunjun, 9, that is causing heated debate in China over the fact police have refused to investigate the woman who allegedly carried out the attack - because she is too well connected.

The pictures of Yunjun's injured face showing a deep cut running from his mouth and across his cheek have gone viral on weibo, the Chinese version of Facebook, where more and more people have been demanding action.

According to the online community, the boy was injured a week ago now, but police have still not started an investigation against his stepmother who it is alleged carried out the attack because she has powerful relatives and is too well connected.

The attack on the youngster happened at Bazhou township in Minhe county in northwest China's Qinghai province.

The boy's medical report shows that he was probably hit with a sharp bladed instrument, and had been chopped not only on the mouth but also on the leg, mouth, arm and neck in an apparently frenzied attack.

Police have confirmed that they have received a complaint about the incident but said that there was not enough evidence to investigate the stepmother.

After six days without action, a member of the boy's family posted the snaps online sparking the demand for action.
