NYT Researcher Held Incommunicado For Seven Months in China

The NYT reports in "China Opens New Inquiry of Times Researcher Held Incommunicado," by Erik Eckholm that researcher Zhao Yan has been held for seven months without access to a lawyer or his family on the suspicion of leaking state secrets. His lawyer was recently informed that the Chinese government is adding a fraud charge to the case, while still refusing to allow Zhao access to his lawyer.

The NYT and senior US officials, including SecState Rice, have protested the bogus incarceration, to no avail.
