CHENGDU, China — More than a dozen Western journalists covering independence unrest in Tibet were ordered today to leave the region within 48 hours because officials say they violated reporting regulations.

New China News Agency said 15 journalists from the United States, Britain, Italy, Canada and Australia are being expelled from Tibet because they did not apply for permission to cover news there. Wall Street Journal correspondent Adi Ignatius was among those expelled.
