Paper banned over cover-up report – SCMP

From the South China Morning Post, via Asia Media:

Authorities in Henan banned a newspaper from publishing for a month after reporting on a mine accident cover-up, in which journalists allegedly accepted money from mine operators to keep quiet.

A staff member at the Henan Business News yesterday confirmed that the paper was banned from September 17 to October 16, but declined to give details.

The ban, ordered by the General Administration of Press and Publication and the Central Propaganda Department, followed the paper’s August 18 story about a mine flood in Henan’s Ruzhou city, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists.
