According to Fox News, Meng was taken into custody on behalf of the U.S. by Canadian authorities on Saturday while she was transferring flights in Vancouver. She now faces extradition to the United States. Chinese officials on Thursday said Meng's arrest violates her human rights; experts warn it could lead the communist government to take American hostages in retaliation.

James Lewis, the director of technology policy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Axios that American tech executives should avoid China for the time being. "If I was an American tech executive, I wouldn't travel to China this week," warned Lewis.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Thursday called for an "immediate release" of Meng on Thursday. "Detaining a person without providing an explanation has undoubtedly violated her human rights,” Geng said, adding the Chinese government "has made clear our solemn positions to the U.S. and Canada."
