Japanese Reporters Detained in Sichuan

Dajiyuan Newspaper, Posted: Jun 07, 2008

TOKYO -- Two Japanese journalists were detained in the earthquake-ravaged area in Sichuan while covering protests by local parents, writes Dajiyuan newspaper. The journalists, from the Japan-based Kyodo News agency, say they were arrested for covering the protest of more than 300 parents whose children died in Juyuan High school in the earthquake. The parents gathered around the local courthouse this week, claiming the collapse of school buildings could largely be attributed to substandard construction. The newspaper reported that the journalists were detained by police for more than an hour. Local authorities dispute that the journalists were arrested and claim that they were separated from the crowd for their own protection. They paper also cited the Chinese Financial Newspaper which claims that the Chinese media has been banned from covering the poor construction contributing to the collapse of school buildings.
