PORT ANGELES: Students safe in China despite tensions

PORT ANGELES — Seventeen high school students and five chaperones are enjoying the hospitality of the Chinese despite tensions between United States and Chinese governments, a relative said Monday.

Governmental tensions escalated Sunday following the midair crash of a U. S. Navy surveillance plane and a Chinese fighter.

But the students and educators have been treated well by their Chinese counterparts, said Karla Snyder, daughter of chaperones Kevin and Linda Snyder.

Kevin Snyder, a member of the Port Angeles School Board, and his wife, Linda, are accompanying the Port Angeles High School students on their 12-day trip to Tangshan, China.
