Tens of thousands of migrant workers driven out of Beijing

Tens of thousands of Chinese migrant workers are being uprooted from their homes in Beijing. According to the government they're being pushed out for their own good - after 19 people lost their lives in a deadly fire in a migrant settlement last month. But the migrants - many from poorer provinces in China - believe they're being driven out in a bid to reduce the city's population.
