China editors removed

Beijing: Editors at two outspoken Chinese newspapers have been removed from their posts months before a politically sensitive handover of power in the country, press freedom groups said on Thursday.

The publisher and deputy editor of Shanghai’s Oriental Morning Post, Lu Yan and Sun Jian, were reportedly removed yesterday, days after the Guangzhou-based New Express moved its chief editor Lu Fumin to a sister title.
