US concerned at Hong Kong journalist attacks

US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki speaks at the daily briefing at the State Department in Washington, DC, on March 10, 2014The United States Wednesday voiced concern about attacks on leading members of the Hong Kong media calling for a full investigation. “While the details of the most recent attack are not completely clear, we are troubled by a series of incidents over the past year that seem to target Hong Kong media figures,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. “Hong Kong’s well-established tradition for respect for the rule of law and internationally recognized fundamental freedoms, including freedom of the press, remain crucial to Hong Kong’s long-standing success and reputation as a leading center of global commerce,” she told reporters. Two Hong Kong media executives were attacked on Wednesday by four masked men armed with metal bars, shortly before police charged two alleged hitmen with a brutal February attack on a veteran journalist.
