News agencies and sources in China today reported the arrests of a prominent U.S.-educated dissident and the country's best-known female journalist in the continuing crackdown on pro-democracy sympathizers. Police in Shanghai arrested Yang Wei, a member of the New York-based dissident group "Chinese Alliance for Democracy," who was released from two years in prison last January. Yang was accused today of making propaganda speeches during the unrest that swept China from April to June.

At least eight children were slain by a man brandishing a knife outside an elementary school in the southeastern Chinese province of Fujian, authorities said Tuesday. The suspect was identified as Zheng Mingsheng, a 41-year-old unemployed doctor who was said to be depressed over personal and professional failings, officials said at a news conference in Nanping, where the attack took place. He was arrested. The rampage began at 7.20 a.m. as the children were waiting to go to school.

The Chinese government has ordered that this year's college graduates must work for one or two years before pursuing graduate studies, an official report said Saturday. The new rules appeared to be another attempt to prevent a recurrence of this spring's popular, pro-democracy student movement that was crushed by troops in June. About 3,500 students planned to start master's and doctoral degree programs this fall, the official China Daily newspaper said.

Duplicate and outdated books from a Ventura library are going to China to replace books burned two decades ago in China's Cultural Revolution. The library at the Ventura campus of Cal State Northridge is packing its third shipment of books destined for some of the 1,070 universities in China. One in five Chinese students studies English. "With the information explosion it's more and more difficult to know what to do with the books" to be discarded, said Joyce Kennedy, Ventura campus director.

BEIJING - Nobody would suspect that this impish toddler is of noble lineage. Yiyi has the same buzz cut as other 3-year-old Chinese boys, the familiar habit of scattering his fleet of toy cars across the living room rug. But his family name gives him away: Yehenala, a famous Manchurian clan that once ruled China. When Yiyi was born, his father and grandfather made the unusual decision to give him the old Manchu name. Generations earlier, the family had shortened the name to Ye to disguise the fact that they were aristocrats in a communist country founded on the principle of overturning feudalism.

The White House expressed grave concern about China's deportation of a North Korean woman who sought asylum there. Press Secretary Scott McClellan said China sent the woman back to North Korea despite attempts by the United States, South Korea and the U.N. refugee agency to discuss the case. "The United States is gravely concerned about China's treatment of Kim Chun-hee," McClellan said in a statement. He said she was arrested in December for seeking refuge at two Korean schools in China.

Thousands of art-loving, or simply curious, Chinese lined up in freezing weather today for an expensive taste of once-forbidden fruit, the People's Republic's first show of nude paintings. An estimated 20,000 people paid 27 cents each--five times the usual cost of admission--for the opening day of the nude oils exhibition at Beijing's National Art Gallery, made up of more than 100 frank works by students and teachers from the country's top Central Academy of Fine Arts.
