Chen Guangcheng turns Daredevil on his captors.
Chen is believed to have used the cover of darkness in which his blindness – he lost his sight at the age of five – gave him an advantage over his captors. He previously attempted to dig a tunnel without success.
Very interested to see how this one will go. The center's never fully backed the local authorities' insane measures against him; this might be embarassing enough for the locals to be in real trouble. I hope.
Update: Jamie here. Shortly after Chen escaped a gang of thugs working for the local government invaded the family compound. Chen's nephew, Chen Kegui, stabbed a couple of them in self defence and is now apparently on the run. Details here.
