    SHAOGUAN, Guangdong, July 9 (Xinhua) -- Two people detained on charges of fabricating and spreading rumors of rapes and beatings in connection with a factory fight in Guangdong Province on Thursday expressed regret for their actions.

    Their unsubstantiated postings on the Internet, saying "Six Xinjiang boys raped two innocent girls at the Xuri Toy Factory" in Shaoguan city, Guangdong Province, caused the massive brawl, which left two Uygur employees dead and more than 100 injured on June 26.

    Huang Jiangyuan, 23, told a Xinhua reporter at a detention center in Shaoguan, that he was angry at being turned down by the Xuri Toy Factory after applying for a job in June.

    "I post an article 'Xuri is trash' at a forum on www.sg169.com on June 16, saying 'Six Xinjiang boys raped two innocent girls at the Xuri Toy Factory', which quickly spread on the Internet," Huang said.

    "I just wanted to express my discontent with the factory, but I never anticipated such a tragic outcome," said Huang, who was detained by police on June 28 over spreading rumor and slandering.

    Police found no rape cases at the Xuri Toy Factory.

    Huang Zhangsha, 19, was detained on June 29 after he published an article the day before on his online chat space, saying "eight Xinjiang people were beaten to death in the factory fight".

    "I witnessed the factory brawl and heard people say 'Xinjiang workers were beaten to death' and 'Han girls were raped' the next day. I did not check the rumor before writing the article," said Huang, a native of Hunan Province.

    The article was widely reproduced the following day.

    Shaoguan police have detained 17 people on charges of fabricating and spreading rumors in connection with the factory brawl. Some would face up to 15 days in administrative detention, said Kang Zhijian, vice director with the Shaoguan Public Security Bureau.

    Facts About Islam

    Muslims Don't Have A Different God

    Many people think Muslims believe in their own god called "Allah" but the literal translation is just "God".  Muslims believe there is one god and one true creator and that it is the very same god the Christians and Jews believe in.
