  China cites 'malicious slander' as Houston consulate closes BEIJING (AP) — China said “malicious slander” is behind an order by the U.S. government to close its consulate in Houston, Texas, and maintained Thursday that its officials have never operated outside ordinary diplomatic norms.

Prosecutors said in a court filing that unsealing the criminal complaint against Tang was required because representatives of the Chinese government have approached the U.S. about “law enforcement activity surrounding” her.

U.S. agents confronted Tang at her home with photographs of her in military uniform worn in service of China’s Air Force Military Medical University, according to the filing. During the interview, she denied serving in China’s military, the U.S. said.
