China expelled three Canadian members of Parliament on Tuesday in apparent retaliation for their activities highlighting human rights abuses here. "I have never seen anyone . . . as unceremoniously and bodily manhandled and thrown around as I was--and my colleagues were--today," Geoffrey Scott, 53, a Progressive Conservative Party representative from Ontario, told reporters after arrival in the British colony of Hong Kong.

After filing 400 stories from China, reporter Melissa Chan never thought she'd wind up in the headlines herself. Chan returned to Southern California last week as the first accredited foreign correspondent to be expelled from China in 14 years, an act that sparked a flurry of news reports and expressions of solidarity from fellow journalists. Chan, who was the sole Al Jazeera English correspondent in China, said she knew she was on shaky ground for most of this year. She had been working on month-by-month credentials since January, when the government refused a routine visa-renewal request.
