Blind Chinese Human Rights activist causes diplomatic crisis after asking Hillary Clinton to take him back to the US on her plane.
The blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng was prepared to spend years in the US embassy in Beijing if necessary as he weighed his next move after escaping house arrest, the US ambassador has said.
But the future of the "barefoot lawyer" and his family is now uncertain, after he agreed to a deal allowing him to stay in China and study, with assurances from the government, only to then change his mind and ask to go to the US.
Chen, who is now in a Beijing hospital, said in a phone interview with the Guardian that he was worried about his health, the safety of relatives still in his home town and his lack of communication with the outside world. "I can't go out. No friends visit me. For a time, my cellphone did not work last night so I worry so much about my relatives back home.
"There are many people around my home with sticks and they have installed closed circuit cameras. I heard they are putting an electric fence around my home."
His health is another worry. "My condition is not very good. The blood in my stool is still very serious, and my leg is broken and in plaster," he said, before the phone was cut off.
His dramatic escape from 19 months of illegal house arrest in his home village in eastern Shandong province led to five days of difficult negotiations involving Chen, the US and Chinese officials.

"My fervent hope is that it would be possible for me and my family to leave for the US on Hillary Clinton's plane," the 40-year-old told the Daily Beast in an interview from his hospital room.
Hillary threw them under the bus.
Chen. I wish u would have called me.
I would have told u that the Klintons are pathilogical LIARS.
Especially “The Beast” Hillary.
When one is trying to escape the communists, it is not wise to rely on other communists.
That poor guy should have known he was screwed when he shook Hillary’s cloven hoof to seal the deal. As soon as her plane goes wheels up he and his family will probably vanish.
There comes a time when it is appropriate to call out China as the Evil Empire Wannabe it is.
As for all the money they are so “kind” to lend us, I seriously doubt they want to disrupt their economy or face a major rearmament by America.
But they can play useful liberal idiots like Hilary and Obama.
Unfortunately, Hillary has made sure his future, as well as that of his family, is very certain.
Mr. Chen will STILL get the Elian Gonzalez treatment.
My timeline guess?
Within 2-3 weeks.
No autopsy and no body either. Everything, all traces of an elimination, will be sanitized and tracks covered. He will unfortunately be as dead as the Chinese female babies who met their demises also, at the hands of the Party and the Government of China.
I don’t know why I thought Hillary or Obama would do the decent and right thing. After all, Chen is “pro life”.
Cardinal Mindzenty was lucky the President of the United States in 1956 was not a Democrat. He would have found himself back in a Communist prison after the Hungarian Revolution was suppressed.
