A Brief Report of the Incident:


On May 13, 2000, Ms. Wang Xiuying was arrested in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, while appealing to end the government's persecution of Falun Gong and its practitioners. She was then detained in the Jiaomen Detention Center of the Chongwen District in Beijing. She went on a hunger strike to protest her illegal detention and demanded to be released without criminal charges. After three days on the hunger strike, as a method of torture, four guards threw her to the ground and force-fed her through the nose. Over the following nine-day period the detention center guards force-fed Ms. Wang with over-saturated salt water five times, which traumatized her both mentally and physically.


On May 22, 2000, Ms. Wang was forcibly given an intravenous drip. At 7:00 p.m. she lost consciousness, and died later that evening.
