Beijing: Bloomberg journalist Haze Fan has been released on bail by Chinese authorities after being held for more than a year, the news agency has reported.
The agency said it has not been able to contact Fan since her release and has been informed about her release by the Chinese embassy in the US.
Fan, who is a Chinese citizen, was last seen in December 2020 being escorted from her apartment building by plain-clothes security officials, reports BBC.
She is among a number of journalists whom China has arrested or expelled.
She was formally arrested in July 2021 on suspicion of committing crimes endangering national security.
China said at the time of her arrest that the matter was an “internal affair”, warning others not to interfere.
