Beijing Makes No Arrests in Protest

World Journal, Posted: Aug 09, 2008

NEW YORK -- Three United States citizens and a couple of foreigners from other countries protested China's human rights record Wednesday in Beijing. The police stopped the protestors and made no arrests, the World Journal reports. The police took the protesters aside, checked their passports and asked them to leave the area. Emmanuelle Moreau, spokeswoman of the International Olympics Committee (IOC) said the Beijing Olympics Committee should have expected people to "use the Olympics to draw people's attention to their goals." She said, "IOC believes Beijing will reasonably evaluate the situation and act properly based on understanding."
