Hong Kong: ‘Eyes will be plucked out,’ China warns West

China has strongly rebuked the UK, the US, Australia, New Zealand and Canada after being accused of a concerted effort to silence critics in Hong Kong, reports the BBC

The countries, which form the Five Eyes alliance, criticised China’s imposition of new rules to disqualify elected legislators in Hong Kong. They urged Beijing to reverse course.

A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman warned countries to stay out of China’s affairs saying: “They should be careful or their eyes will be plucked out.”

“The Chinese never make trouble and are never afraid of anything,” Zhao Lijian told journalists in Beijing on Thursday, saying it did not “matter if they had five or 10 eyes”.
