A library in China has burned 65 books and other items that they say deviate from Communist Party doctrine.

Workers at the county library in Zhenyuan, Gansu province, burned 65 "illegal publications and religious publications, especially books, pictorial publications and visual content that showed leanings," the South China Morning Post reported, quoting a post by the library on a Chinese website.

The burning comes after the Chinese education ministry ordered schools to go through a "special review and clean-up" of books that are illegal, "unsuitable," outdated, or damaged.
