    Beijing Police Follow Scandinavian Journalists

    Two police officers in an unmarked car followed and briefly questioned two Scandinavian journalists working together on a story in an eastern suburb of Beijing.

    Police arrived in Pingfang village and demanded to see the identification of Beijing-based Sami Sillanpaa of Helsingen Sanomat and Philip Lote, a visiting correspondent from Norwegian television. The reporting pair was allowed to continue their work, but sources were reluctant to talk under the gaze of nearby police, Sillanpaa reported.
