China Reforms Some Human Rights Policies

World Journal, Posted: Feb 13, 2009

The World Journal reports that China rejected calls to eliminate the death penalty and to give media more freedom, but agreed to let Hong Kong and Macao residents enjoy "different" human rights than Chinese citizens living on the mainland.
