BEIJING (Reuters) – Last year, the United Kingdom expelled three Chinese spies who were in the country on journalism visas, according to a report by The Telegraph newspaper on Thursday. The report, which has not been independently verified by Reuters and cites a UK government source, says that three intelligence officers from China’s Ministry of State Security intended to work for three different Chinese media agencies. “Their true identities were discovered by MI5 and they have since been forced to return to China,” the report said, referring to the UK’s national security services. Also on Thursday, Britain’s media regulator revoked a Chinese television license after concluding that the Chinese Communist Party had ultimate editorial responsibility for the channel.
