Organ Sourcing in China: The Official Version

Washington, UNITED STATES: Falun Gong demonstartors dramatize an illegal act of paying for human organs during a protest 19 April 2006 in Washington, DC in conjuction with the visit by Chinese President Hu Jintao to the US. A team of US officials has found no evidence in northern China to support claims by the Falun Gong spiritual group that thousands of its followers have been killed and their organs harvested in concentration camps, the US government said last week. Despite such a finding, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Washington has taken the Falun Gong's charges "seriously" and has urged the Chinese government to probe the claims.
