    SCMP Reporter Detained In Guangzhou

    Malaysian journalist Leu Siew Ying, who works for the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post, was detained by police in Panyu district, Guangzhou, for eight hours while she was attempting to cover the one-year anniversary of disturbances in Taishi village. Her mobile phone was taken away so she could not call for assistance as the detention dragged on. She was threatened with a strip search, accused of disturbing public order and forced to sign a statement admitting that she had violated immigration rules because she did not carry her passport (although she had her press card as ID).
