Olympic Freedoms For Foreign Press In China Set To Expire

From AFP:

Rules introduced before the Olympics aimed at giving foreign reporters greater freedoms in China are set to expire Friday, with authorities refusing to say whether they will be extended.

China’s communist rulers have indicated that some freedoms will be maintained but have given no details on what the post-Olympic environment will be for the international media.

“China will continue to follow the opening-up policy and to facilitate the work of foreign media and journalists in China,” foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters on Tuesday.
