China’s Media Censored Over Stabbing

The Age reports on efforts to censor domestic reporters covering the stabbing of an American tourist in Beijing:

Several Chinese reporters had their notebooks and at least one tape recorder confiscated after a news conference held by the US men’s volleyball team.

The players had been discussing the impact of the murder on them. The victim was the father-in-law of team coach Hugh McCutcheon and the father of former national team member Elisabeth McCutcheon.

Sources have told The Age the confiscation caused disquiet at the venue. It was uncertain if the items were returned.
