World - China stops prominent rights lawyer from meeting German minister


By Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese police blocked a prominent human rights lawyer from meeting Germany`s deputy chancellor, the lawyer said on Wednesday, in the latest example of curbs on government critics in China. Sigmar Gabriel was unable to hold talks with members of Chinese civil society during a visit to Beijing on Tuesday, though he declined to comment on why the planned meeting at the German embassy had not taken place. Gabriel had told reporters travelling with him to China that he would meet critics of the Chinese government, saying he believed that European politicians had an obligation to show support for such dissidents. But police came to the office of the human rights lawyer, Mo Shaoping, and said they had received orders `from above` that Mo was not allowed to attend, Mo told Reuters.

Business - China factory activity shrinks for fourth month, but pace of decline slows


By Kevin Yao BEIJING (Reuters) - China`s factory activity shrank for the fourth straight month in April, signaling economic weakness into the second quarter, a preliminary survey showed on Wednesday, although the pace of decline eased helped by policy steps to arrest the slowdown. `It`s generally in line (with expectations), reflecting that the growth momentum is stabilizing,` said Zhou Hao, China economist at ANZ in Shanghai, who expected economic growth to pick up slightly to 7.5 percent in the second quarter. Annual growth in China`s economy slowed to 7.4 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier, its slowest pace in 18 months, but the pace was just ahead of market expectations and seemed to soothe fears of a sharp downturn. China`s central bank will cut the amount of deposits rural banks must hold as reserves by between 0.5 and 2 percentage points, it said on Tuesday, the latest in a series of measures to help combat a slowing economy.

Bradley Beal scored a game-high 26 points to spark Washington over Chicago 101-99 in overtime, giving the Wizards their best NBA playoff start in 32 years.
