By Sui-Lee Wee BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese state media labeled the United States a mincing rascal and high-level hooligan on Wednesday in response to Washington charging five Chinese military officers with hacking U.S. companies to steal trade secrets. The indictment on Monday was the first criminal hacking charge the U.S. has filed against specific foreign officials, and follows a rise in public criticism and private confrontation between the worlds two biggest economies over cyber espionage. As a first response, China suspended a Sino-U.S. working group on cyber issues. In an editorial, the Global Times, an influential tabloid run by the Peoples Daily, the official newspaper of Chinas Communist Party, said this was the right move, but we should take further actions. We should encourage organizations and individuals whose rights have been infringed to stand up and sue Washington, the newspaper said.
