BEIJING -- Chinese lawmakers on Friday adopted the amended Postal Law after days of a second reading.

The amendment is one of a series of laws being deliberated by the National People's Congress Standing Committee, which convened its bimonthly session from Monday to Friday.

New stipulations included an article forbidding all organizations or individuals from opening, hiding, damaging or discarding others' letters, instead of just preventing postal workers from doing so.
