Beijing police have issued advice to help women escape being harassed in subways, Beijing News reported on Tuesday.

Harassment cases rise with the arrival of summer, according to the traffic department under the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Women can use bags, magazines or newspapers to cover body parts that are exposed, the advice said.
