China Arrests Another Internet Activist

Chinese Internet activist Zhang Yuxiang has been arrested in the eastern city of Nanjing and is being held in a guesthouse, New York-based Human Rights in China (HRIC) said Saturday. Citing unamed sources, the report said that following his detention on March 12, Zhang was taken by police to Siyang county in eastern China’s Jiangsu province to be interrogated about articles he posted on the Internet. Zhang’s wife has not been given any formal notice of his arrest, the report said. The one-time party cadre who worked in the Air Force propaganda department had previously spent time in prison for helping to establish the Chinese Democratic Federation. His detention follows the arrest of several other activists, including Liu Di and Li Yibin in Beijing, Ouyang Yi in southwest Sichuan province, Jiang Lijun in the northeastern city of Lianoing and Tao Haidong in the western province of Xinjiang. Tao, 45, was tried in the Urumqi People’s Intermediate Court on January 8 and sentenced to seven years in prison. Full Story
