    Beijing Police Block Photography of Christian Activist

    Authorities blocked AP photographer Greg Baker from photographing Beijing Christian activist Hua Huiqi because he was not carrying his temporary residence registration form.

    Baker was seeking to enter a courtyard home to photograph Hua Huiqi, who had been beaten. When Baker argued he had all the legally required documentation with him, and that he could not have gotten his visa without having first registered his residence with police, he was told he “had to prove” he had registered.
