BEIJING – Chinese state media said Thursday that four Japanese are being investigated after being accused of entering a military zone without authorization and illegally filming military targets.
China's state-run Xinhua News Agency cited state security authorities in the northern city of Shijiazhuang as saying they have "taken measures" against the four Japanese "after receiving a report about their illegal activities." There was no elaboration.
The authorities accuse the Japanese of entering a military zone without authorization in Hebei province, the capital of which is Shijiazhuang.
