China newspaper replaces top editors over scandal

BEIJING -- The top editors of a Chinese newspaper have been replaced after one of their journalists was arrested for damaging the reputation of a major state-owned construction equipment maker, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Friday.

The wrangle over the journalist and his newspaper, the Guangzhou-based New Express tabloid, comes as the government cracks down on freedom of expression by journalists, lawyers, whistleblowers and internet users. The editor-in-chief of the New Express, Li Yihang, and deputy editor Ma Dongjin were both removed from their posts, Xinhua said.
