China marks 1.3 billionth person


China named the first baby born at a Beijing hospital as the 1.3 billionth person of the world’s most populous nation, more than two decades after a one-child policy was introduced to keep its numbers in check. The baby boy was born at 12:02 am at the Beijing Hospital of Gynaecology and Obstetrics and weighed 3.66 kg (eight lb).
