According to Hong Kong pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily, an insider confirms that Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping has returned to Beijing from his visit in southern China.

Xi’s trip brought him to Guangdong province. There, he gave a speech to mark the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone.

With the public eye focused on him, many expected Xi to cover more ground during the trip. But in a surprise move, he returned to Beijing after just 3 days.

The sudden end to Xi’s trip has aroused suspicion among the Chinese public.
