Chinese anti-government activist Fu Xiancai, was severely beaten and paralysed after and now the government says he did it to himself.
Must be more of that diabolical asymetrical warfare.
Fu is an activist fighting for for people displaced by the Three Gorges Dam.
According to BBC News, after Chinese police athorities siezed him, and let him leave, he was viciously attacked on his was home.
He was hit so hard on the back of his neck that three of his vertebrae were broken.
From the BBC: "Officials told Mr Fu's son, Fu Bing, that investigators had failed to find anyone else's footprints at the scene of the attack, and had concluded that he must have hit himself."
Human Rights in China (HRIC) is on the case, poiting out that the "investigation" is being carried out by the same public security bureau that had a record of harassing Mr. Fu.
