Ben Blanchard: China Dissident Who Tried to See Zhao Family Held -Activist

From Reuters, via Boston.com:

A Chinese dissident who tried to pay his respects to the family of late deposed Communist Party chief has been detained for threatening national security, a fellow pro- campaigner said on Sunday.

Zhang Lin, who played a leading role in 1989 pro-democracy protests in the eastern province of Anhui that mirrored those held in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, was held by police on his return from Beijing in late January, said activist Ren Wanding.
