London/Beijing, Nov 28 (PTI) The rare protests against China's zero-Covid policy are evidence that the people are "deeply unhappy" with the restrictions imposed on them by the Chinese government, the UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said on Monday.

He also described the arrest of a BBC journalist in Shanghai as "deeply disturbing".

In a rare show of dissent against the ruling Communist Party led by President Xi Jinping, protests have erupted across China. People are angry over the Chinese government's controversial zero-Covid policy, which include mass testing and snap lockdowns.
