BEIJING (REUTERS) - China urged Britain on Wednesday (June 26) to stop interfering in China's internal affairs, after Britain banned sales of crowd-control equipment to Hong Kong and called for a probe after police clashed with demonstrators in the former British colony.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang made the comment at a daily news briefing in Beijing.
