China dissident brands nephew's conviction 'revenge'

Chinese blind activist Chen Guangcheng said in a video released Sunday that a three-year jail sentence handed to his nephew was "revenge" for his dramatic escape to the US embassy earlier this year. Chen, who was imprisoned after exposing abuses under China's "one child" population control policy, caused a diplomatic row when he escaped house arrest in his village in Shandong province and reached the US mission in Beijing.
