    Reporters Blocked From Covering Activist Trial in Jiangsu

    Reporters from the South China Morning Post and the New York Times were turned away from Yixing court where they planned to cover the trial of environmental activist Wu Lihong.

    Outside the courthouse, three people believed to be plainclothes police officers photographed and verbally harassed the reporters.

    One of the three searched one of the journalists’ bags when the journalist stepped away, in apparent violation of constitutional protection of privacy.
