An 11-year-old girl in China was beaten to death by her father for copying a classmate’s homework, state-run media said Wednesday.

The man ‘ordered the girl to kneel down, tied her hands and beat her’, the official Xinhua news agency reported. The father took her to hospital after she stopped breathing but she died the next day, Xinhua said. Doctors at the hospital in Hangzhou found bruises and injuries on the girl’s neck and back and signs she had been choked for as long as five minutes, the Xiandai Jinbao said.  The incident is the latest in a series of child abuse incidents in China that have drawn widespread outrage.
