Beijing has conferred the title of 'Revolutionary Martyrs' on the three journalists killed in the Nato bombing of its embassy in Belgrade. Premier Zhu Rongji, on behalf of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council, announced the award at a ceremony at the Great Hall of the People presided over by National People's Congress Chairman Li Peng, Xinhua said. Shao Yunhuan, from Xinhua, and husband and wife Xu Xinghu and Zhu Ying, from the Guangming Daily, were killed in last Friday's attack which also left six staff severely injured. The ashes of the three were flown back to China on Wednesday, as were the injured. President Jiang Zemin praised the three journalists and demanded an end to the war. 'It is time to end such a war. No political solution can be discussed in the United Nations amidst Nato's continuous wanton bombing,' he said. Mr Jiang condemned 'US hegemonism' and saluted the anti-war protests on the mainland over the weekend. 'These just activities demonstrate the patriotism and cohesive force of the Chinese nation, as well as the will of the people to oppose hegemonism. China can never be bullied.' But Mr Jiang added that authorities 'will continue to unremittingly maintain the social stability'. 'China must be vigilant to the attempts of hostile forces from both home and abroad to create chaos and undermine the modernisation drive in China,' he said. Earlier, the President expressed his 'profound solicitude' when he met relatives of the bomb victims, Xinhua reported. Groups at Beijing University also commemorated the victims and voiced opposition to Nato. Meanwhile, Beijing's embattled embassy district resumed a semblance of normality, though United States missions across China remained closed and angry officials clamped down on Western events. Officials said US missions in Beijing, Shenyang and Chengdu would stay closed until at least Monday. The latter mission was stormed and set ablaze by a frenzied mob last Saturday. US consulates in Shanghai and Guangzhou, which did not sustain significant damage, would reopen today for most citizen services. The state-owned China Radio International halted Easy FM, a Western music programme produced in Australia, on orders from station bosses, a worker said. China Central Television and Beijing Cable Television announced they would cancel broadcasts of their hugely popular US basketball games.
