Gunmen Kill Chinese Businessman in Bolivia

LA PAZ – A Chinese man was gunned down outside his restaurant in the eastern Bolivian city of Santa Cruz over the weekend, media reports said Monday.

Luping Lin, who owned a chicken restaurant in Santa Cruz, was murdered on Saturday, the El Deber newspaper reported on its Web site.

The 47-year-old Luping was shot by two suspected gunmen, who also wounded a passerby before fleeing on a motorcycle.

A gang had been trying to extort money from the businessman, whose son was kidnapped and later released by the criminal organization, El Deber said.

Santa Cruz, Bolivia’s most populous city, has the highest crime rate in the country, official figures show.
