In China, police have detained seven Chinese netizens so far, for posting online comments defaming Chinese soldiers who died during Galwan Valley clash with India in June 2020. State media reported that the netizens came from Beijing, Chongqing, South China's Guangdong, North China's Hebei, Southwest China's Guizhou, Sichuan and East China's Jiangsu provinces, with ages ranging from 19 to 40. China unveiled the details of the deaths of Chinese soldiers involved in the border clash with the Indian army in the Galwan Valley near Line of Actual Control for the first time on Friday, prompting many to flood social media platforms with emotions running high. China passed a law in 2018 that makes it illegal to defame the country's martyrs with offenders to be held criminally responsible. Previously, several popular Chinese bloggers have had their accounts suspended for insulting heroes.
