Al-Jazeera says it has been forced to close its bureau in Beijing after its English-language reporter was expelled.

China's decision not to renew the press credentials and visa of Melissa Chan is the first such action against a foreign reporter for many years.

Al-Jazeera said it would "continue to request a presence in China".

The move will be viewed as an attempt by the Chinese authorities to intimidate foreign media operating in the country.
