A French journalist is being "expelled" from China after she criticized the government's official rhetoric about global terrorism.
Ursula Gauthier, a reporter for L'Obs, a French news magazine, wrote an article in November questioning how the Chinese government insisted violent attacks in the country's Xinjiang region are related to global terrorism following the attacks in Paris. (Video via Les Choses De La Psy)
Recently, Xinjiang has been home to violent clashes between two ethnic groups. Gauthier accused the government of sowing tensions through heavy political constraints on the minority Uighur group.
