A freeway in China is built around one couple's home (with picture)


When Luo Baogen and his wife refused to leave their apartment in the coastal Chinese city of Wenling to make way for a new freeway, officials ordered the road built around them. Adjacent apartments were left intact so the building would not collapse. The compensation on offer wasn’t enough, says the couple, whose home now stands as a strange testament to China’s rapid-fire growth.
