In China, reporter beaten to death at illegal mine

New York, January 16, 2007—Unidentified men at an illegal coal mine in Huiyuan County, Shanxi Province, severely beat reporter Lan Chengzhang on January 9, leading to his death the following day, according to news reports. The Committee to Protect Journalists is investigating to determine whether Lan’s death was connected to his journalism, and it called on authorities to bring the killers to justice.

“We’re appalled at the brutal killing of reporter Lan Chengzhang and call on national authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into his death,” said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon. “Violence against journalists is on the rise in China, and it will continue to put the press in danger unless authorities at the national level make a real effort to investigate these cases and punish those responsible.”
