Trump sought Xi's help on UCLA players arrested in China

LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill - were arrested last week while their team was in Hangzhou ahead of the team's season opener in Shanghai.

ESPN reported that authorities have surveillance footage of the players stealing from three stores.

Three UCLA basketball stars may be left in China as allegations against them for shoplifting go through the legal system. Under watch by Hangzhou police, they've been staying at a lakeside hotel where they've been unable to leave.

The rest of the Bruins returned to Los Angeles on Saturday from a weeklong trip that concluded in Shanghai with a 63-60 victory over Georgia Tech in the Pac-12 China Game. After Trump's entreaties, Jinping reportedly said he would look into it and make sure the players were treated fairly and expeditiously. The Post cited an official who indicated charges against the players have been reduced and the case is close to resolution. Los Angeles Lakers rookie and big bro Lonzo also did not have much involvement on the issue and, per instructions of his team and family, focused more instead on fixing his early-season struggles with the 16-time National Basketball Association champion franchise. The two leaders did not speak about it publicly, even though the arrests made headlines worldwide. Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for China's Foreign Ministry, said the case had been reported to United States authorities, saying, "China is handling this case in accordance with the law, and will guarantee the rights in accordance with the law, for those involved in this case".

Newer iterations of the machine are also used for more creative purposes like decorative purposes like making confetti. Besides the hole puncher, he has invented a binder and a special nib for ink pens suitable for calligraphy.

Though people are voicing for the UCLA players, but if convicted, Ball and the others could be jailed for 10 years. The teams had traveled to Hangzhou earlier in the week to visit the headquarters of the game's sponsor, Chinese tech giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. The three Bruins remain in a luxury hotel in Hangzhou, where they emerged publicly for the first time Monday and a spokesman said they are "doing fine", the Los Angeles Times reported.

"We hope everything works out", he told reporters in Manila.

Areddy of the Wall Street Journal reported the news.
