China: Foreigner’s Death Spurs Better Security in Chongqing

Chongqing municipal police have vowed to better protect foreigners after the recent death—believed to be a homicide—of a British national. Officials claim that outside of the recent scandal, there have been no cases of violent crimes against foreigners in Chongqing since 2010. The megacity is a hub of business, academics and tourism, and is plagued by many of the same crimes that other large cities face: scams and theft. Officials also add that most of these nonviolent crimes occur in crowded tourist sites. However, the recent death is a stark reminder that regardless of a city’s relatively peaceful history, travelers should remain vigilant at all times.
