China bars two human rights activists from travel

China is at it again . . .

Two prominent legal advocates bound for an international law conference in London were blocked from leaving China on Tuesday on vague charges that their departure might endanger national security, the two men said.

Although the men, Mo Shaoping and He Weifang, said that while they were not given explicit reasons for why they were barred from their flight, they suspected that the government feared they would try to attend the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo next month to the Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.
