Apple iPhone 4S Sale Cancelled in Beijing Amid Chaos

  

Apple cancelled its scheduled sale of iPhone 4S in one of its stores in China’s capital Beijing on January 13.

Crowds outside the store in the Sanlitun district were waiting on queues overnight. There were incidents of scuffle between shoppers and the store’s security staff when shoppers, hundreds of them, were told that the sales had been cancelled. Some of people waiting outside the store pelted eggs. The police intervened later and took away some of the shoppers.
