Again a "nail house" in China, the last building in the area. This one is in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. According to local media, the owner of the house didn't reach an agreement with the local authority about compensation of the demolition. A common thing in China, therefor a lot more of this so called nail houses in this gallery.
Xu Aiguo, the owner of a nail house, the last house in the area, set up a Chinese national flag outside his balcony in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, November 8, 2010. Xu's family refused to move due to unsatisfactory compensation for their house, even though demolition has started on other rooms in the building. Leo Lang / Reuters/REUTERS
