Foreign Journalists arrested after filming at Wangfujing

The German embassy works for the release of several German correspondents or journalists who have been arrested on Sunday on charges of violating rules which banned recordings in the Wangfujing area, Beijing, according to the Frankfurter Rundschau (FR) online.  Reportedly, another “jasmine walk” was taking place there today.

Several prominent critics who had supported the movement are under arrest and to be charged with advocating subversion of state power, writes the FR, without naming the critics. But it seems the article refers to some or many of the names C. A. Yeung published earlier this week.

A related Bloomberg report touches both on Beijing and Shanghai.
