“The directive was made by the security department after fears that phones were being used to record and pass information to journalists,” a source said.

Journalists were also moved from the waiting area on the 14th floor to the boardroom on the eighth floor, amid concerns that politburo members were sneaking out of meetings and sharing information with reporters.
