Photos of an elderly Chinese couple's house standing in the middle of a huge dual carriageway as they hold out for compensation before leaving have become an internet hit. 

A half-demolished apartment building stands in the middle of a newly-built road in Wenling, in eastern China's Zhejiang province. An elderly couple have waged a four-year battle to receive more than the US$41,300 compensation offered for the house by the local government of Daxi.

The photographs, widely carried by Chinese state media and websites on Friday, show a partially demolished five-storey block of flats in the centre of the road in the eastern province of Zhejiang.
