Australian blogger disappears in China

An Australian blogger and spy novelist, Yang Hengjun, is missing in China. He may have been arrested by Chinese authorities.

The latest:
The Chinese government has denied any knowledge of a missing Australian author thought to have been detained by the secret police.

Australian writer Yang Hengjun went missing in Guangzhou on Sunday after telling friends he was being followed.

His colleagues believe he is being held by secret police here.
China denies knowledge of missing Aussie writer

Let's hope it's just a mistake.

Nevertheless, as the blogosphere becomes more powerful, the powerful will become more repressive.
