Clothes hang from the entrance of a single-story brick house, known as a "black jail" in Beijing Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. A Beijing court sentenced 10 people to prison Tuesday for illegally detaining citizens trying to take their local grievances to the central government, state media reported, in a possible sign the government is trying to rein in abuses. Such petitioners are frequently intercepted by local government agents and detained illegally in shabby hostels known as "black jails." (AP Photo/Andy Wong)
