In sports news, the Women’s Tennis Association announced it was immediately suspending all tournaments in China because of the “unacceptable” response to star player Peng Shuai’s accusations of sexual assault against former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli. Peng’s social media post last month was censored within minutes, and she subsequently disappeared from public view. She has since been seen in videos and photos released by state media, but questions have remained over whether she is acting of her own free will. The International Olympic Committee said they are concerned about the tennis player after speaking with her via video again this week and say they will meet in person in January. Beijing is hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics.
