    Kyodo Reporter Forced To Leave Two Tibetan Areas

    Five policemen entered a hotel room in Tongren, Qinghai province where a Kyodo News reporter was staying at around 1:30 a.m. and demanded to see his identification papers. Local foreign affairs officials later told the reporter to leave the area because it was “dangerous.”

    Later that same day near Xiahe, Gansu Province, police stopped the same reporter when he tried to reach an area where demonstrations were taking place. He was told to leave; police vehicles escorted his car until he left the province.
