Apparently they are making a small mountain out of a molehill regarding the discovery of a radio jammer in a vehicle near the launch site. They began investigating interference a month ago, now found the jammer in a vehicle. It was simple one that can be bought off Taobao with an alleged range of 32 feet, but somehow that was newsworthy...
Of course, it is not official, but...
The NASAspaceflight article refers to them as taikonauts. Again this is a Western invention, the Chinese refer to them as astronauts.

Airspace closure for the return of Shenzhou-14 has been posted. Effective 11:52~12:22 UTC on December 04.
There's another one to the west, exactly 1.5 hours after the previous one, which is expected to be reserved for a backup landing site.

The Shenzhen-14 search, rescue and recovery mission completed the last comprehensive system-wide exercise, and the Dongfeng Landing Site has made preparations for the return of the spacecraft. Shenzhen-14 See you tomorrow night~
It's like the space reunion just happened yesterday, but it's already time for Shenzhou-14 to return (~1200UTC DEC.04)The two crews have signed document to certify the handover & Shenzhou14 handed a symbolic key to #Shenzhou15, who are now in charge of the China Space Station

The aerial search and rescue team for the Shenzhou 14 spaceship return capsule is ready for mission at night on Sunday in the Dongfeng Landing Site in northwest China. Now, the Shenzhou 14 is on its way home.
Time for #Shenzhou14 to do its first attitude adjustment, turning 90° to prepare for the separation of Orbital Module
Which is followed by the separation of Orbital Module
There's report that deorbit burn of #Shenzhou14 started at ~11:22UTC (for ~3mins), after the 2nd attitude adjustment.
Latest footage of #Shenzhou14. Next big event will be the separation of propulsion/service module

🤔The main chute was not cut. Suspension lines still on
Well. The ground team just cut the main chute suspension lines by hand
Official landing time of #Shenzhou14 is 12:09UTC.The medical team have reported astronauts are in good condition.
Welcome home, #Shenzhou14!Astronaut & commander CHEN Dong
Thanks, no mask🙂

#ChenDong is the first to get out of the re-entry capsule.Chen made a new record during the Shenzhou-14 mission. He has become the first Chinese to stay in orbit for more than 200 days.
#LiuYang also got out of the re- entry capsule and entered the transportation vehicle.

CAS completed the first seed-to-seed full-life-cycle growth of rice in space
CMSA has handed over research samples brought back by #Shenzhou14 to the National Space Laboratory of China, including rice 🌾 and Thale cress 🌱 grown in space
CAS says some seeds harvested in space will have chance to be brought back to space to grow new rice.
[Shenzhou-14 video] Separation from the space station + de-orbit braking before returning + inertial flight after braking.
* Derail braking into return orbit
👇This photo shows #Shenzhou14 return capsule was dragged by the main chute for ~5mWondering if CMSA would say anything about why it was not cut.Possible cause:❓Malfunction of the cutting system❓Astronauts decided not to cut❓Astronauts forgot to initiate the command
It should be noted that the wind speed was very low at the time of landing.📷(c) [email protected]张敬宜Tea-tia
As taikonaut Chen Dong said, “we were returning to earth like the shooting star.”The shining spot at the front is the return capsule and the burning trail is the propulsion module. People in China captured the moment when the #Shenzhou14’s return capsule flew across the sky.
