A five-storey house, which was marooned in the middle of a new road in
China for more than a year because its owner refused to leave, has
finally been demolished.
The road, in China's eastern Zhejiang province, was built around the house because duck farmer Luo Baogen was holding out for more compensation, reports the BBC. Luo, 67, said he had just finished the home at a cost of $95,000 and had been offered only $35,000 to move.
