BEIJING — Angry cus-tomers and gangs of scalpersthrew eggs at Apple Inc.’sBeijing store today after theiPhone 4S launch there wascanceled due to concernsover the crowd’s size.Apple reacted to the out-burst by postponing iPhone4S sales in its mainland Chinastores to protect customersand employees. The phonestill will be sold online andthrough its local carrier.The incident highlightedApple’s huge popularity inChina and the role of middle-men who buy up limited sup-plies of iPhones and otherproducts or smuggle themfrom abroad for resale toChinese gadget fans at a bigmarkup.Hundreds of customersincluding migrant workershired by scalpers in teams of 20 to 30 waited overnight infreezing weather at the Applestore in a shopping mall inBeijing’s east side Sanlitundistrict.The crowd erupted afterthe store failed to open onschedule at 7 a.m. Somethrew eggs and shouted atemployees through the win-dows.A person with a mega-phone announced the salewas canceled. Police orderedthe crowd to leave and sealedoff the area with yellow tape.Employees posted a sign say-ing the iPhone 4S was out of stock.“We were unable to openour store at Sanlitun due tothe large crowd, and to ensurethe safety of our custom-ers and employees, iPhonewill not be available in ourretail stores in Beijing andShanghai for the time being,”said Apple spokeswomanCarolyn Wu.The iPhone 4S quicklysold out at other Apple storesin China, Wu said. She saidthe phone still will be sold inChina through Apple’s onlinestore, its local carrier ChinaUnicom Ltd. and authorizedresellers.Wu declined to com-ment on what Apple mightknow about scalpers buyingiPhones for resale.China is Apple’s fastest-growing market and “anarea of enormous opportu-nity,” CEO Tim Cook saidin October. He said quarterlysales were up nearly fourtimes over a year earlier andaccounted for one-sixth of Apple’s global sales.Apple’s China stores areroutinely mobbed for therelease of new products.The company has itsown stores only in Beijingand Shanghai, with a hand-ful of authorized retailersin other cities, so middle-men who buy iPhones andresell them in other areas canmake big profits, said WangYing, who follows the mobilephone market for AnalysysInternational, a research firmin Beijing.“Apple is making a lot of money, so it is not too con-cerned about the scalpers,”Wang said.Wang and other industryanalysts said the size of theunderground trade and pricemarkups are unclear.In Shanghai, stores limitediPhone 4S sales to two percustomer. Several hundredpeople were waiting whenthe stores opened, bundled upagainst the cold. Some passedthe time playing mahjong.Buyers included 500 olderpeople from neighboringJiangsu province who werehired by the boss of a mobilephone market, the newspa-per Oriental Morning Postsaid. They arrived aboard an11-bus convoy and were paid150 yuan ($15) each.Online bulletin boardswere filled with commentsabout today’s buying frenzy,many complaining about orridiculing the scalpers.

BRENTWOOD, N.H. — ATexas woman was sentencedtoday to 45 years in prison forsuffocating her 6-year-old sonin a New Hampshire motelroom and leaving his bodyalong a dirt road in Maine.Julianne McCrery, 42, of Irving, Texas, told prosecutorsshe had planned to kill herself and that she killed her son,Camden Hughes, because noone else was fit to raise him.But prosecutors say they haveevidence McCrery felt the boywas an inconvenience, andthat she planned to go abouther own life after killing him.McCrery spoke tearfully ather sentencing hearing, callingher son beautiful and brilliant.“I am sorry to have causedthe intense pain and sufferingto my precious son Camden,”she said. “He did nothingwhatsoever to deserve that bymy hand, and he was not aninconvenience to me.”McCrery pleaded guilty inNovember to kneeling atopher son as he laid face-downon their motel room floor. Shetold investigators she coveredhis mouth with her hand as hestruggled to survive.On Friday, she said it has takena while for her grief to fully unfold,but now it is “excruciating.”The discovery of Camden’sbody last May set off a nation-wide effort to identify him.Meanwhile, McCrery calledhis elementary school in Texasdaily to report him absent withappendicitis.McCrery was arrested at aMassachusetts truck stop fourdays after Camden’s body wasdiscovered. A motorist whohappened by the remote areawhere Camden’s body wasfound was able to describea pickup truck she had seenwith its doors open and a Navyinsignia on its window.When she was questionedat the truck stop, McCreryidentified herself and toldpolice she had killed her sonat a Hampton motel and lefthis body under a green blanketby the side of the road.McCrery’s family members— including a son on leavefrom the Navy — attended thesentencing.

ban doing business withMyanmar, block financialtransfers, especially by mili-tary-backed leaders and theircronies, and also deny visas tothe same VIPs.“I think we are close to theremoval of Western sanctions,”said Monique Skidmore,a Myanmar expert at theUniversity of Canberra, addingthat the U.S. and others mightfirst wait to see Aung San SuuKyi take a seat in parliament.“There’s a sense that there’sstill more to go before the sanc-tions will be removed.”Thein Sein’s government,Suu Kyi and the West — withWashington its key representa-tive — are involved in a com-plicated three-way give andtake. Thein Sein seeks to nor-malize relations with the West,which generally defers to SuuKyi in judging the govern-ment’s goodwill and progresstoward democracy.Suu Kyi’s party, mar-ginalized for more than twodecades of military rule, seeksa more active role in politicsif the government will allowa more level playing field.The re-entry of her NationalLeague for Democracy partyinto mainstream politics is thekind of endorsement the gov-ernment needs to win Westernapprobation. What needs to bedetermined is the price eachside is willing to pay.Until this week, even someof Suu Kyi’s supporters fearedshe had sold herself short. Thecountry’s most prominent polit-ical prisoners had remainedbehind bars with hardly a sournote struck by Suu Kyi in pub-lic. Cease-fire talks had beenheld between the governmentand various ethnic minorityguerrillas groups, which havebeen fighting for autonomyfor decades, but actual com-bat between the army and theKachin minority in the northdominated relations.Then on Thursday the gov-ernment announced a cease-firedeal with the main ethnic Karengroup — the most durable rebelmovement — and the prisonerrelease followed directly on that.Whether by chance ordesign, the latest moves come just ahead of visits by someU.S. senators influential in for-eign affairs, including MitchMcConnell and John McCain,whose political muscle can seala deal — or wreck it.
