China Railway Corp.'s Gag Order Targets Social Media Users

(Beijing) — China Railway Corp. (CRC) has responded to the recent cybersharing of a rail-accident video by barring employee use of social media to disseminate information about such disasters, according to a memo obtained by Caixin.

The worker gag order was issued Wednesday after the state-owned CRC, the nation's sole rail operator, said in the memo that it had identified employees who circulated information linked to two accidents that left eight people dead in Zhengzhou, the capital of central China's Henan province.
