An 11 year old girl in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province was beaten to death by her father after she copied a classmate's homework. 

According to Xinhua (via AFP) the man "ordered the girl to kneel down, tied her hands and beat her". After she stopped breathing he took her to hospital, but she later died. Doctors found signs that she had been choked for as long as five minutes. 

In January, the Supreme People's Court and other ministerial bodies announced plans to strengthen the country's laws on child abuse after a spate of violent incidents. Around that time, a boy in Hubei had his ears cut off by his aunt after she quarelled with his parents. Another boy, in Henan Province, required eye surgery after his teacher encouraged the boy's classmates to beat him after he misbehaved in class.
