Secret video released of detained Chinese lawyer

Chen Guangcheng is a blind, self-taught lawyer who was sent to jail in 2006.

Beijing: Secretly shot video of a Chinese activist lawyer who has been under strict house arrest since his release from prison last year has been leaked online. This is the first the public has heard from Chen Guangcheng since his release.

The US-based China Aid Association released the video on Thursday. They said it came from an "anonymous government friend inside China" who is upset about the way Chen and his family are being treated.

Chen is a blind, self-taught lawyer who was sent to prison in 2006 after documenting forced late-term abortions and sterilisations and other abuses in his rural community.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton mentioned Chen in a speech shortly before Chinese President Hu Jintao`s visit to Washington last month.
