Back page: China shames travelers over airport incident

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese authorities have named and shamed four travelers over an incident at Bangkok’s airport in which they vented their frustration by belting out the Chinese national anthem. The four were part of a group of Chinese tourists whose flight home had been delayed by eight hours until 3 a.m. When the plane arrived, they refused to board until their compensation demands were met, then broke into the national anthem amid hooting, shouts and general chaos in the departure lounge. A 57-second clip of the incident recorded on a mobile phone circulated widely on the Internet in China, prompting an investigation by the China National Tourism Administration, which said Saturday it had added their names to its list of those accused of “uncivilized behavior.”
