Gao Zhisheng alive, ID “Verified”

Gao Zhisheng (高智晟) said in a brief phone conversation, apparently with Reuters and AP, that he was fine now, but not in a position to be interviewed. He had been sentenced, but released, and according to the New York Times, he was speaking from a place near Mount Wutai (五台山), the site of many Buddhist monasteries and temples.

The BBC quotes Reuters as saying that they had taken steps to verify Gao’s identity.
