Al Jazeera has closed the China bureau for its English channel after Chinese authorities refused to renew its correspondent's visa, marking the first such expulsion of an accredited foreign correspondent in over a decade. Melissa Chan had reported from Beijing for Al Jazeera's English language channel since 2007, as well as maintaining a Twitter feed with over 14,000 followers. The Chinese characters in the traditional couplet above the door reads: "Safety is blessing". REUTERS/Jason Lee (CHINA - Tags: POLITICS MEDIA BUSINESS)

ATTENTION EDITORS - THIS IMAGE IS 10 OF 24 TO ACCOMPANY A PICTURE PACKAGE RELEASED AHEAD OF THE START OF THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON WHICH BEGINS JANUARY 23. PLEASE SEARCH KEYWORD 'BLACK WATER' TO SEE ALL IMAGES PXP900-923.

A dragon-designspring festival couplets are seen on a banner for the upcoming temple fair of the Chinese Lunar New Year at Longtan Park in Beijing, January 18, 2012. In the year of the Black Water Dragon, investors could get torched again if they leap back into the market too soon. But the outlook is expected to brighten considerably later in the year. In a world of economic turmoil that's scorched investors, it's tough to make predictions, but that's the forecast for Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index if one follows the principles of feng shui - the ancient Chinese art, or science, based on 'Qi', the natural flow of energy - according to brokerage CLSA. The Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, begins on January 23 and marks the start of the Year of the Dragon. The Longtan Temple Fair will take place from January 22 to 29. The Chinese characters of the spring festival couplets reads, "Dragon Year Longtan, Accompanied by Happiness". Picture taken January 18, 2012. REUTERS/Soo Hoo Zheyang (CHINA - Tags: SOCIETY)

A few residents still live in their one-storey houses in the neighbourhood as they did not reach an agreement about compensation with the developer. Chinese banks are taking risks by lending against the collateral of land as land prices might fall, central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan said on Saturday.
