Chen Guangcheng: Point of no Return?

Bob Fu (傅希秋), a pastor and activist who runs US-based group China Aid (对华援助协会), is quoted as saying that Chen Guangcheng (陈光诚) had changed his mind and was now prepared to leave China, provided that his family would accompany him. “[Chen] understands that there is no way he could return to Dongshigu now”, Fu told AFP in a telephone interview, without revealing his sources.

Hu Jia (胡佳) and other friends of Chen had previously said that Chen wanted to stay in China, but Hu added that Chen, after having entered the US embassy, was in a difficult position, ABC News reports today. There had been no way to shelter Chen within an underground network of safe houses where Chen had stayed between his escape from his home village Dongshigu, and his second getaway within days, to the American embassy.
