New York, July 24, 2012–A year after drawing public ire for
censoring coverage of a high-speed train crash, Chinese authorities should
allow journalists to freely cover the aftermath of Saturday’s deadly flooding
in and around the capital, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today.
International news accounts said 37 people died in Beijing and up to 100 people
nationwide.
