Chen Guangcheng Convicted Again

How predictable:

China activist's verdict upheld
A court in China has upheld a sentence of four years and three months in jail given to a prominent human rights activist, Chen Guangcheng.

Mr Chen, who is blind, was originally convicted in August of damaging property and disrupting traffic.

But that sentence was unexpectedly overturned due to what the court said were procedural violations, which led to a third hearing on Monday.
