A wanted criminal hid for 17 years in a tunnel he dug underneath his home in China…after killing someone from a neighbouring village over a minor disagreement.

Police in Zhangxu village, Suinan town, China, finally flushed Hui Guangwen out of his secret tunnel after a tip-off.

“We got information that he was hiding in his home, so we made a surprise search and found the tunnel,” said a police spokesman.
