Taiwanese tourist detained in Shanghai
[Taipei] Local press in Taiwan recently reported an usual story about a newlywed, Lin Xiaokai, who is now in custody of secret police in Shanghai while travelling in China as a tourist.
This is the first time that the secret police in China detained a Taiwanese tourist. Sources say that Lin practices Falun Gong, a meditation practice that is banned in China. Lin's wife and friends are working hard to earn his release through appealing to the press and international community. China refused to comment on this matter as it normally does when detaining other foreign nationals due to religious or political reasons.
