Greenpeace Expelled

SHANGHAI, China () -- Chinese officials boarded a Greenpeace vessel protesting Chinese nuclear tests Wednesday and escorted it out of Shanghai waters.


But before making the MV Greenpeace leave, a Chinese official accepted a statement calling for an end to Chinese nuclear tests and urging Beijing to sign a test-ban treaty, said Damon Moglen, a Greenpeace spokesman in Hong Kong.


The environmental group's flagship had traveled to Shanghai to highlight its charge that China is one of the biggest obstacles to concluding a test-ban treaty this year.


The ship was now headed for Hong Kong.
