Missing bookseller returns to Hong Kong

Books on forbidden topics in mainland China -- such as the Tiananmen Square massacre, critical analyses of its leaders and an imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize winner -- are published and sold in Hong Kong.

HONG KONG -- The mysterious case of the five missing booksellers has entered a new stage. Hong Kong police say that one of the men -- Lui Por -- has returned to the self-governing city from mainland China.

     In a statement released on Friday evening, the police said that officers had met Lui, who had asked the authorities to cancel a missing person investigation launched after he disappeared. Lui also said that he did not "require any assistance" from the Hong Kong government, and refused to disclose any other details of what had happened to him, the statement said.
