From the South China Morning Post, via Asia Media:
A lawyer helping residents of Guangdong’s Taishi village in their struggle to oust their headman was attacked by strangers yesterday after visiting rights activist Yang Maodong, who is believed to be under government surveillance.
Tang Jingling said he suffered no physical injury. But Mr Yang, who had also been assisting the Taishi residents, said the attack was unacceptable.
Mr Tang said he was tailed by four people wearing plain clothes after leaving Mr Yang’s home at about 2pm. He strolled around for two hours and had a haircut, after which two more people and a motorbike joined those following him.
