Chinese Authorities Assault Journalists: Japan News Agency

A Japanese news agency claims that Chinese police raided their hotel in Beijing, assaulted three journalists, and destroyed their computers:

The three journalists from Kyodo News were in the Chinese capital covering a National Day rehearsal when authorities stormed into the room of their hotel last night, the news agency said.

Kyodo alleged a reporter and two cameramen were kicked “and hit their heads to make them kneel down…”, without specifying who the “authorities” were. It also did not disclose the nationality of the three journalists.

They threw the two computers out of the room and into the corridor of the hotel, which is near Tiananmen Square, the venue of the National Day celebrations scheduled for October 1.
