The disappearance of Diaoyu Islands activist Yang Kuang, coupled with assaults on two Hong Kong journalists outside Liu Xia's home on Friday, have sparked outrage across the city's political divide and among Hong Kong delegates gathered in Beijing for the annual sessions of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and National People's Congress.10 Mar 2013 - 5:52am 6 comments
Outrage and condemnation came after a handful of Hong Kong journalists on assignment in Beijing were brutally attacked. They were abused by a group of men of unknown identity when covering an activist trying to visit Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo's wife on Friday. The journalists were doing nothing more than legitimate reporting on the activist and the dissident's wife. The assault is an affront to press freedom and the public's right to know.10 Mar 2013 - 2:52am 3 comments
