    SNIPPET: "On Tuesday, Bryan Underwood was sentenced to nine years for trying to pass secrets to China.   The irony is that the Chinese government didn’t put him up to it, and when Underwood went to a Chinese government building to sell photos of a U.S. consulate compound in Guangzhou, the Chinese turned him away. They were not interested, or didn’t understand what he was trying to convey.'

    Citizens in south China's largest city, Guangzhou, risk a drinking water cut-off in the coming days as salt levels reach alarming heights, state media said Monday. A "salt tide," caused as a drought sucks seawater inland, is threatening the city and municipal authorities can no longer guarantee normal, uninterrupted supplies, the People's Daily reported. To brace for the crisis, several waterworks have been ordered to cease operations for limited periods of time over the coming week, according to the paper. The steps come as salt levels in some parts of the city's water supply have hit 2,000 milligrams per liter,...

    HONG KONG, Saturday, Dec. 27 — A free-lance television employee has fallen ill 80 miles from here in southern China with what doctors suspect is SARS, health officials here and in mainland China said on Saturday afternoon. The unidentified man has the clinical symptoms of severe acute respiratory syndrome, including a full-blown respiratory tract infection and fever, said P.Y. Lam, Hong Kong's director of health. But a laboratory test for antibodies against the virus was inconclusive, possibly because blood was drawn for the test early in the illness, while a genetic test for the virus has not yet been completed,...
