Reporters’ guide for Beijing Olympics

Human Rights Watch, with the support of the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has released a pocket guide for journalists planning to cover the upcoming Beijing Olympics. According to the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), the guide “addresses how to report in a largely closed country with particular attention to the hazards facing Chinese sources and news assistants.”

The ICFJ said there are an estimated 25,000 reporters expected to descend on Beijing for the games.
