The International Olympic Committee has been accused of breaking a promise to push China for greater media freedom ahead of the Beijing Games.
China is the “world’s leading jailer of journalists” with 29 writers and reporters currently behind bars, a journalists’ rights group has claimed.

He said: “China made a promise to the IOC, but the IOC made a promise to the world that the media policy would be greatly improved.
