Anger flares after brutal action by Chinese pandemic prevention workers. Their killing of a pet dog was caught on tape.

The United States and China engaged in top-level dialog, but without a major breakthrough. President Joe Biden and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping formally met for the first time since Biden took office. But after the meeting, Beijing again sent military aircraft flying over Taiwan, in an apparent threat to the self-ruled island.

An elderly mother seeks to visit her only son, imprisoned in China. But she’s faced multiple rejections by authorities, all because of her son’s human rights activism.
