NPR reports that the decision comes after Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai accused former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault. . Her post, as well as her account, on social media site Weibo, were deleted by the Chinese government. . NPR reports that concern for Peng's safety has now persisted for weeks. . "Unfortunately, the leadership in China has not addressed this very serious issue in any credible way. While we now know where Peng is, I have serious doubts that she is free, safe and not subject to censorship, coercion and intimidation,".
