Reporters Without Borders Reporters Sans Frontières (RSF) – Five human rights activists and netizens were attacked by presumed police auxiliaries on the night of 18 September while trying to visit human rights activist Chen Guangcheng and his family, who have been under house arrest in Dongshigu, a village in the eastern province of Shandong, for more than a year. The five activists – Miao Jue ( @miaojue12 ), Peng Yuanzhong , Ge Jiang , Liu Shasha ( @lss007 ) and Chen Jianfeng – were attacked near Chen’s home by a dozen men who took their phones, bags and money. Two of the women in the group, Liu and Miao, were beaten, detained and then dumped in the middle of a field several dozen kilometres from Dongshigu.
