AN ATTACK ON BIG MAC IN BEIJING

BEIJING CITY OFFICIALS WANT their Big Macs to go. According to published reports, McDonald's lucrative outlet two blocks from Tiananmen Square will be forced out to make way for a commercial, office, and residential development. That move would violate a 20-year lease McDonald's obtained in April, 1992. And it could send a chill through many foreign operations in China. McDonald's says it has no plans to vacate the site, and has received no notice from city officials. Yet bulldozers already have cleared most of the block around its outlet.EDITED BY KEITH H.
