Beijing Olympics comparison to Nazi Berlin Games an insult: China





A British newspaper editorial comparing the Beijing Olympics to the 1936 Games in Nazi Germany is an ``insult to the Chinese people,'' China's Foreign Ministry said.

In a statement issued late Tuesday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang lashed out at The Sunday Times, which published an editorial by ex-British Cabinet minister Michael Portillo linking the two events.

``It is an insult to the Chinese People, and an insult to the people of every nation of the world,'' Qin said in the statement, posted on the ministry's website.
