China executes two over tainted milk powder scandal

China executed a dairy farmer and a milk salesman today for their role in a tainted infant formula scandal in which at least six children died and 300,000 were made ill...Nineteen others have been jailed since January in connection with the case, which involved deliberately contaminating milk with melamine...Sanlu, the company at the heart of the scandal, knew that its milk was making babies ill...but it did not inform officials...Zhang Yujun, a farmer, was executed for endangering public safety and Geng Jinping for producing and selling toxic food...parents have suggested the men were merely scapegoats...blam[ing] Sanlu's general manager, Tian Wenhua…200 families are calling for more compensation, saying the deal organised by the government - 1.1bn yuan (£97m) from 22 companies…is inadequate.
