Nineteen people were killed after fire swept through a low-rent and overcrowded accommodation block in Beijing near the airport on Nov. 18. Most of the residents were migrant workers from China’s rural areas. Beijing authorities launched a 40-day eviction campaign targeting similar substandard cheap living quarters.
