President Tsai receives death threat on Facebook

Taipei, Feb. 5 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) received a death threat on her official Facebook page on Tuesday, the first day of the Year of the Pig.

The threat was made by an apparent pro-China visitor in a message reading: "New Year's wish: Behead Tsai Ing-wen, unify China."

In response, the Criminal Investigation Bureau said the act may have violated the Criminal Code and that police have launched an investigation to identify the visitor.
