China frees film maker after 5 months in isolation – Reuters

From Reuters:

A Chinese film maker and permanent U.S. resident has been freed after being held in isolation and without charge in China for five months, a Paris-based press watchdog said on Wednesday.

Hao Wu, who returned to China in 2004 after living in the United States for 12 years, was detained on February 22 after interviewing a human rights lawyer while making a documentary about an underground Protestant church.

He was held in isolation for 140 days and not allowed access to a lawyer, Reporters Without Borders said in a statement. It did not give the day of his release. [Full Text]
