BEIJING people reacted with fury and outrage to the Nato attack on their embassy in Belgrade, calling for US President Bill Clinton to be tried as an international war criminal and the closure of the US Embassy in Beijing. The Beijing Evening News splashed the news across its front page, saying Nato forces, led by the US, had fired three missiles at its embassy in Belgrade. 'This is absolutely unacceptable,' said one Public Security officer outside the US Embassy. 'We are taking no part in this war and the US attacks us. I am sure it was intentional. There were three missiles and there are so many embassies in Belgrade. Why target ours? The US is angry at our support for Yugoslavia.' He called for Mr Clinton to be tried as an international war criminal. 'We should expel the US ambassador at the least or close their embassy here,' his colleague said. 'The Kosovo problem is an internal affair of Yugoslavia and no business of other countries.' 'China is not making war on anyone,' said a shop saleswoman. 'Our foreign policy is peaceful. This is outrageous. We must respond in some way.' Others standing around had radical suggestions, among them 'blow up their embassy here' and 'we have missiles too - launch them at the US'. 'Our leaders have become too weak,' a teacher said. 'We fought the Americans in the Korean War . . . but our leaders do not dare to do so now.' The Chinese media has shown carefully censored coverage of the conflict in Yugoslavia, with lots of footage of the effect of the Nato bombing, but little of the plight of the Albanian refugees and, if so, blaming it on the Nato operation, which it has described as 'terrorism'.
