Vietnam frees anti-state blogger, U.S. calls for more releases

“Vietnam has released a high-profile blogger who has traveled to the United States, the American embassy said on Sunday, but a human right group said the move extended a ‘cynical’ practice by Hanoi to send its critics into exile. Ta Phong Tan, a former police officer, was sentenced to 10 years in jail in 2012 for ‘anti-state propaganda’ after she was arrested for writing in her blog about human rights and corruption.”
