China has detained journalists in the fishing village where it suppressed new protests five years after the village received international attention for demonstrations against land seizures.

The South China Morning Post in Hong Kong reported Thursday that one of its journalists in Wukan was assaulted by a group of unidentified men during an interview in a villager’s home. The newspaper journalist and two other journalists were taken to a government office where officials accused them of conducting “illegal” reporting.

The newspaper said its journalist was eventually taken to the border with Hong Kong.

The BBC also reported that its journalists in Wukan were forced to leave.

Wukan remains under siege after the government arrested 13 people Tuesday and used rubber bullets on protesters.
