Chinese give warnings

March 22, 1989

BEIJING (Reuter) – China has suspended the credentials of Robert MacPherson, a Canadian journalist for Agence France Presse, for one month because of his coverage of recent anti-Chinese riots in Tibet. AFP said the foreign ministry accused MacPherson, of Magog, Que., of visiting Tibet without authorization, and of going to Lhasa after martial law had been imposed. The ministry also gave warnings today to reporter Guy Dinmore of Reuters and Jasper Becker of London’s Guardian newspaper, but did not suspend their credentials.
