China Builds New Road Around Couple's House

Posted: Updated:

An elderly couple who refused to leave their home under government orders ...may now be regretting that decision.
 
The Chinese government, moving forward with a construction project in Zhejiang province.

This, despite the couple's refusal to sign a demolition order on their house.

Now, the home of Luo Baogen and his wife stands directly in the middle of a newly-built highway, surrounded by nothing but open road.

The Baogen's claim the government did not offer them enough money to rebuild their five-story house elsewhere.

They're still refusing to leave the place they call home.
