A Chinese dissident who posted essays on the Internet that criticized communist authorities has disappeared and may have been abducted by the security services, an advocacy group said Friday.
Huang Qi, founder of the human rights Web site 64Tianwang, was forced to get into a car by three unknown men on Tuesday evening in the southwestern city of Chengdu, Reporters Without Borders said Friday.
The Paris-based group said two other activists, whom it didn’t further identify, were abducted with Huang.
The group, known by its French initials, RSF, said it believed Huang may have been taken away by police or agents of the State Security Ministry because of articles he has posted criticizing the government’s response to the May 12 earthquake that devastated a wide swathe of Sichuan province, of which Chengdu is the capital.
