Chinese Authorities Manhandle Christian Bale For Attempting To Visit Anti-Abortion Dissident

Hollywood actor Christian Bale was manhandled and roughed up by Chinese security guards as he tried to visit a blind legal activist whose detention has sparked international outcry.



Bale, joined by a camera crew from CNN, was confronted by four men dressed in plain clothes as he tried to visit Chen Guangcheng who has been under house arrest in the Dongshigu village for 15 months.


Chen Guangcheng, a blind lawyer, angered authorities in 2005 by exposing forced abortions as part of China’s one-child policy.
