Spanish court issues arrest warrant against former Chinese president over Tibet


Spain’s relations with China are about to suffer a world of hurt.

On Tuesday, a Spanish court issued an arrest warrant for five Chinese ex officials, including China’s former president Jiang Zemin, 87, on claims of genocide against the Tibetan people. They have not been formally charged.

GlobalPost’s Benjamin Carlson reports on the case brought by a Tibetan Rights group and a monk with Spanish nationality.
