China Says President's Jet Bugged

China Says President's Jet Bugged

Quote:
LONDON (Reuters) - China has said its intelligence officers found more than 20 spying devices in a Boeing 767 meant to become President Jiang Zemin (news - web sites)'s official plane after it arrived from the United States, published reports said on Saturday.

Reports appearing in the Financial Times and The Washington Post said the listening bugs were discovered last autumn before the aircraft's planned maiden voyage.

The Post quoted Chinese officials as charging U.S. intelligence agencies with planting the devices while it was being refitted in the United States. A Chinese official told the FT it was unclear China would use the incident against the United States because of improving relations.

To date, 27 listening devices had been found in the plane, including one in the presidential bathroom and another in the headboard of the presidential bed, the Post reported.

Chinese official eyed in bugging of plane

Chinese official eyed in bugging of plane

Quote:
Chinese President Jiang Zemin believes fellow Politburo member Li Peng is behind the planting of electronic listening devices aboard the president's new U.S. jetliner, according to a classified State Department intelligence report.
Mr. Jiang is said by U.S. intelligence officials to be convinced that Mr. Li ordered the aircraft bugging to listen in on the Chinese president's discussions of financial corruption related to Mr. Li's wife and children.
The assessment of China's discovery of 27 electronic eavesdropping devices inside a new Boeing 767 jetliner helps explain why Beijing has had a muted reaction to the incident, which Beijing initially blamed on U.S. intelligence, the officials said.
