Qincheng – China's infamous prison
By Johnny Erling
In northern Beijing, about 35 kilometers from the city, hides Qincheng, the country's notorious special prison. All party leaders from Mao Zedong to Xi Jinping have had their political opponents disappear there since 1960. No journalist was allowed to glimpse behind its walls. China's judiciary is also kept out. Qincheng answers only to the Ministry of State Security. It's a reminder that in China, too, the revolution eats its children.
