Tienanmen Protests Leader Denied Entry to China

26 November 2013

The second most wanted student leader from the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests was turned back from Hong Kong on Monday in his latest attempt to surrender to Chinese authorities and return home. It was the fourth such attempt by Wu’er Kaixi, who has lived in self-exile for more than two decades. Wu’er confirmed in a text message that he was being sent back home to Taiwan. He had tried to turn himself in to authorities in Hong Kong as his flight from Taipei, Taiwan, transited through the semiautonomous Chinese city on Monday on the way to Bangkok.—AP
