Mr. Fang Xiangfu was a 33-year-old practitioner from Fangzheng County, Heilongjiang Province. Police arrested and tortured him many times because he practiced Falun Gong. In 2002, police from the Fangzheng County Police Department and 610 Office sent him to Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp, where guards tortured him, using over 20 torture methods. As a result, seven ribs and chest bones were broken, his skull was injured and the backs of his hands were scorched. The guards invented a torture to increase his suffering. They shot needles from a homemade gun at practitioners. The needles went deep into the flesh and caused excruciating pain. As a result of the brutal torture, Mr. Zhang died on October 15, 2005.
