China continues severe crackdown over resignation letter

CHINESE authorities are mounting a crackdown after an extraordinary letter surfaced on a Chinese Government website calling for the resignation of President Xi Jinping.

The open letter, signed by "loyal communist party members", has triggered a fierce response from Chinese authorities.

At least 20 people have so far been arrested and family members have being detained in a campaign of intimidation.

By Chinese standards, it is an explosive letter; openly calling for the President's resignation is unprecedented.

And the suggestion that the letter has come from within the Chinese Communist Party is totally unacceptable.
