Chinise Dissident To Stay In China

A senior U.S. official announced that Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese activist at the center of a diplomatic row between the U.S. and China, will remain in China after the government agreed to relocate Chen and his family to a safe environment. For the last six days, Chen had sought protection at the U.S. Embassy on “humanitarian grounds,” but officials says he wasn’t seeking asylum in the U.S. and wished to remain in China. Under the agreement with Chinese officials, U.S. diplomats will be allowed to check in with Chen to confirm he is being treated well.
