Chinese Blogger in Jail

Blogger Hao Wu who has a site known as Beijing or Bust has been incarcerated in China and there is no news of what has happened to him or the charges other than the State has acknowledged that he has been detained and he has spoken briefly with his family. He was picked up on Feb. 22nd by the Security Bureau and suspicion is that the authorities want to use Hao's videos to prosecute underground churches. More info at The Peking Duck and here.
