Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in front of Taiwan's Presidential Palace on Saturday to protest against the treatment of a soldier who died after being punished for misconduct. 24-year-old military conscript Hung Chung-chiu died of organ failure triggered by a heatstroke on July 4, 2013, days before his military service was due to end. Hung was punished and held in solitary confinement for bringing a mobile phone with a built-in camera into his military base.
