Dan­ger ahead

Vocable (Anglais) - - Le Tour Du Monde En V.o. -

A mi­ni cross­bow po­pu­lar with chil­dren in Chi­na has been ban­ned by the au­tho­ri­ties af­ter it emer­ged it could fire nails and needles. The hand­held "toy", which had been de­si­gned to shoot too­th­picks, was the fo­cus of a craze in Chi­nese schools. Raids were car­ried out on toy shops across the coun­try to en­force the ban, ac­cor­ding to state me­dia. An of­fi­cial said the cross­bow had "va­ni­shed from shelves al­most as fast as it emer­ged".
