Trail over tainted dumplings underway

A trial has been held for a Chinese man accused of poisoning dumplings which sickened 10 people in Japan, Japanese and Chinese media say.

Factory worker Lu Yueting admitted putting insecticide in frozen dumplings that were later exported to Japan, Xinhua news agency said.

The 2008 incident led to a scare over Chinese food and strained diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The trial comes as a senior Japanese minister visits China.

Lu Yueting worked in Tianyang Food company in China’s Hebei province from 1993 to 2009.

He was accused of using a syringe to put insecticide into the frozen dumplings over frustration with his wages and colleagues.
