Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Provincial authorities apologized to a China Central Television journalist who was beaten up while reporting a story about pollution at a paper mill, the state-run Global Times newspaper said today.

Zhao Xi was attacked Jan. 9 after he went to film illegal pollution emissions at the mill in Yueyang in southern Hunan province, the newspaper reported. Two employees at the mill were arrested and local officials visited Zhao to apologize, it said.

The local government held an emergency meeting after the attack and ordered an investigation into the pollution allegations, according to the newspaper. It said Zhao suffered “slight injuries” to his forehead.
