Wife Of Blind Activist Says She Was Dragged Off Bus In Eastern China – AP

From IP, via International Herald Tribune:

The wife of an imprisoned blind Chinese activist said Saturday she was dragged off a bus to stop her from traveling to Beijing to speak out on his behalf.

Yuan Weijing said she was on a bus from Shandong province in eastern China on Friday when it stopped and she was pulled off by a group of government workers.

Last week, Yuan was blocked by Chinese authorities from leaving for the Philippines, where she was to accept the Ramon Magsaysay Award, Asia’s version of the Nobel Prize, on behalf of her husband, Chen Guangcheng.
