Three detained for fabricating, spreading rumor on ethnic dispute
         GUANGZHOU, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- Police in south China's Guangdong Province have detained three men for allegedly fabricating and spreading rumors that some Uygur ethnic people were beaten up by passers-by and security guards for theft.

      A native of Guangdong surnamed Chen made up the initial rumor after seeing a brawl between two security guards and four foreigners on Dec. 22 in the provincial capital of Guangzhou, the city's public security bureau said Wednesday in a statement.

      Chen spread the rumor on the Internet, while the two other talebearers, surnamed Nong and Ye respectively, responded to the fake message and further spread it.
