Keith Bradsher and James Brook: Chinese News Media Critical of North Korea

From The New York Times:

State-controlled media and censored Internet chat rooms in China have become uncommonly critical of in the two days since it declared that it had nuclear weapons, even as the Foreign Ministry here has said fairly little.

The criticism by state-run media is important because the Chinese government has tended to take a protective position, at least in public, toward North Korea, its neighbor and sometime ally. China also has more influence with North Korea than any other country does, providing it with much of its fuel, food and other supplies – although even Chinese influence has proved limited at times.
