NBC News — A small group of demonstrators gathered in Hong Kong monday to protest in support of blind activist lawyer Chen Guangcheng. Chen is believed to be sheltered in the U.S. embassy in Beijing after escaping house arrest.
Washington has not officially confirmed that. The protesters demanded Chinese authorities stop harassing Chen's family and release other human rights activists in China. Human Rights Watch says the U.S. is working on a proposal for the Chinese government over Chen's fate.
