CHINA RECALLS AMBASSADORS

China recalled all of its foreign ambassadors, but officials refused to confirm the move was linked to the fallout from the crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators. In Tokyo, Ambassador Yang Zhenya told Education Minister Takeo Nishioka that he was going home as part of a general recall. A Western diplomat in Beijing said the ambassadors' meeting would take place July 7. The diplomat noted that China recalled all its ambassadors during the 1966-76 Cultural Revolution, when the nation cut almost all contacts with the outside world.
