PIXMAN MISS­ING IN XIN­JIANG

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BEI­JING: An award-win­ning Chi­nese pho­tog­ra­pher is miss­ing and may have been de­tained by state se­cu­rity of­fi­cers while vis­it­ing China’s far-flung western Xin­jiang re­gion, his wife said. Lu Guang, a three-time World Press Photo award win­ner, had been in­vited to take part in pho­tog­ra­phy events in the re­gional cap­i­tal, Urumqi, late last month. Xu Xiaoli said she lost touch with her hus­band on Nov 3 while he was trav­el­ling alone in the south­ern city of Kash­gar and has not heard from him since. She later con­tacted the wife of the per­son who in­vited her hus­band to Xin­jiang and was told both men had been taken away by state se­cu­rity of­fi­cers. – Reuters
