Blind Chinese activist announces affiliations with three US institutions
WASHINGTON (AP) - Blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng has announced affiliations with three United States institutions, which he says will allow him to keep speaking out on the "inhumane brutality" of the Chinese government.
Mr Chen sparked a diplomatic crisis when he fled to the US Embassy in Beijing from house arrest.
Since last May, he has been a special student at New York University (NYU).
Mr Chen has said that NYU forced him to leave because of pressure from the Chinese government, which the university denied.
