China keeping a top-secret watchlist of US travelers | 07 April 2021 | Nearly 700 Americans -- including government workers, CEOs and even Ashanti -- were secretly placed on a Chinese watchlist when they traveled through Shanghai’s main airport, The Post has learned. A database shared with The Post has a spreadsheet listing the names, birth dates and passport numbers of 697 US citizens, some of them children, who were flagged while passing through Pudong International Airport in 2018 and 2020.
