font size    

Three Chinese journalists killed in the U.S.-led NATO bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade eight years ago were commemorated at a special ceremony Monday.

Shao Yunhuan of Xinhua along with Xu Xinghu and his wife Zhu Ying from the Beijing-based Guangming Daily newspaper were killed in the missile attack which inflicted serious damage to the embassy buildings on the evening of May 7, 1999.

The ceremony was attended by the Chinese ambassador to Serbia, Li Guobang, and members of staff from the embassy. There was also a number of Belgrade-based Chinese journalists, scholars and students, as well as various representatives of Chinese companies at the event.

The guests laid wreaths and flowers at the ruins of the former Chinese embassy.

The bombing aroused indignation in China and condemnation from the international community. China recalled its ambassador from Washington in protest against the attack.
