Foreign correspondents criticize Beijing
The Foreign Correspondents' Club of China (FCCC) has expressed concern about intensifying threats against foreign journalists in light of the departure of BBC correspondent John Sudworth. The Chinese state and state-controlled entities are increasingly making "false claims that foreign correspondents and their organizations are motivated by anti-China political forces," FCCC said on Twitter. According to the statement, Chinese authorities also showed a greater willingness to threaten media professionals with legal action. There was concern foreign journalists were getting involved in diplomatic disputes that were beyond their control.
