Chinese Police Beat, Arrest BBC Journalist Covering Covid Protests

A BBC journalist has been arrested in China while covering protests on Sunday against the country’s zero-Covid policy.

BBC also revealed that the journalist was also beaten by police.

Hundreds of people took to the streets in China’s major cities on Sunday in a rare outpouring of public anger against the state.

“The BBC is extremely concerned about the treatment of our journalist, Ed Lawrence, who was arrested and handcuffed while covering the protests in Shanghai,” the broadcaster said in a statement.

Lawrence, working in the country as an accredited journalist, was detained for several hours, during which time he was beaten and kicked by police, according to the BBC. He was later released.

Lawrence tweeted on Monday to thank his followers, adding he believed “at least one local national was arrested after trying to stop the police from beating me.”

The reporter later returned to the scene of the protest, according to videos he posted on his Twitter page.

“It is very worrying that one of our journalists was attacked in this way whilst carrying out his duties,” the BBC said.

“We have had no official explanation or apology from the Chinese authorities, beyond a claim by the officials who later released him that they had arrested him for his own good in case he caught Covid from the crowd,” the statement added.

“We do not consider this a credible explanation.”

China’s foreign ministry said Monday that Lawrence had not identified himself as a journalist.

Based on what we learned from relevant Shanghai authorities, he did not identify himself as a journalist and didn’t voluntarily present his press credentials,” foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said, telling international media to “follow Chinese laws and regulations while in China.”
