The Olympic torch arrived in Beijing in response to a call from critics for a boycott of the Winter Olympics, which will be staged in February.

The flames were received by Cai Qi, the secretary of the Communist Party in Beijing, the chief executive of the Chinese capital.

Beijing is the first city to be awarded the right to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics.

Human rights critics say China’s political critics, crackdowns on minority groups, including Tibetans and Uighurs, and crackdowns in Hong Kong should encourage athletes and politicians to avoid the case.

The Beijing Winter Olympics will be held from February 4th to 20th.

Only spectators from mainland China can participate.
