Journalists demand Yahoo explain hacked China e-mails

Journalists’ rights groups are demanding an explanation and stronger online privacy protections after reporters in China said their Yahoo! Inc. e-mail accounts were hacked.

The accounts of at least 10 foreign journalists based in China and Taiwan were targeted in cyber attacks in recent weeks, Reporters Without Borders, a Paris-based press freedom group, said in a March 31 statement. The group cited the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China, which is accusing Yahoo of failing to respond to questions or explain what happened.
