China also concerned by student bashings

WOOW... this is something new, CHINA MEDDLING in Australia's INTERNAL AFFAIRS
CHINA'S Government joined India today in demanding Australia provide better protection for foreign students after a series of violents assaults on Indian students which victims have called racist.

"There are over 130,000 Chinese students in Australia. They have on the whole had good study and living environment in Australia, but attacks on Chinese students also occurred in recent years," a spokesman for China's embassy in Canberra told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"It is hoped that the Australian Government will provide better protection to international students from China and other countries," the spokesman said.

There is an ongoing debate to what extent racism was behind violent attacks on Indian students, including the latest slashing of a man in Melbourne by a group of five youths.

The latest attack has redoubled fears that violent bashings and robberies of Indian students could seriously damage Australia's third-biggest export earner, the $15bn market for overseas students.
