China has stopped renewing press credentials of United States correspondents stationed in the Asian country amid rising tensions between Beijing and Washington, a media organization warned on Monday.

The Foreign Correspondents Club of China said in a statement it is “very alarmed” that the foreign affairs ministry has “issued letters in lieu of press cards that force foreign journalists based in China into a precarious, temporary status”. EFE-EPA
