China Sanctions US Human Rights Watch For Backing Violence in Hong Kong

24 comes as President Trump introduced amendments to existing US policy on Hong Kong allowing Washington to impose sanctions on officials in the special administrative region.

China is introducing sanctions against a number of US non-governmental organisations, including Human Rights Watch in retaliation for a US bill banning the export of crowd control weapons to Hong Kong police, the country’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The Foreign Ministry added that China had suspended a review of a request for visits by US naval vessels and aircraft to the territory.
