Protesters want Li death inquiry
About 25,000 protesters demanding an inquiry into the death of activist Li Wangyang marched to the central government's liaison office on Sunday. Organisers urged chief executive-elect Leung Chun-ying to 'express Hongkongers' anger' to mainland authorities.
Li had recently been released from 21 years in jail. The local government of Shaoyang, in Hunan province , said he died 'an accidental death'. It did not describe his death as 'suicide' - the word used by Shaoyang's Daxiang Hospital, where Li was found dead on Wednesday.
Yin Zhengan, a friend of Li, said Li's sister and sister-in-law were missing after being taken away by police. He added: 'I'd like to express my gratitude and admiration for the support from Hong Kong people.'
