Landlord begins demolishing mountain on apartment roof

CHINA

Crews started dismantling the private mountain peak Friday morning.

Chinese officials gave him 15 days to take down the project he spent six years building.

The property owner hauled rocks, trees and bushes to the top of his 26-floor apartment, located in bustling Beijing.

Government officials called his creation, outrageously illegal and cracked down on it after locals complained the landlord was getting special treatment.
