Islands dispute: Three Japanese musicians denied visas to China

Three members of the Taiwan National Symphony Orchestra have been refused work visas for an imminent tour of mainland China. All three are Japanese. No reason has been given, but it seems to be connected to rising tensions over the Pacific islands dispute between China and Japan.

The NSO will play Shanghai and Beijing in the first week of November.
