Shanghai Daily reports:
TWO Shanghai residents have received administrative penalties for spreading rumors of nuclear radiation.
One man, surnamed Wu, posted on a popular social networking site that nuclear pollutants had arrived in the city from the damaged power plant in Japan. Another man, surnamed Yin, Wu’s former classmate, helped spread the rumor on his microblog and via instant messages, police said.
An official said their behavior had breached the public security law.
No news on what sort of “administrative penalties” the pair received or if the rumours were salt-related.
