    Hong Kong missing booksellers Lee Bo returns from China

    March 24, Beijing: Hong Kong missing publisher, Lee Bo, who sold books critical of China's leadership has returned to the city. Bo was widely believed to have been abducted and taken to mainland China.

    Lee, a British citizen, disappeared last year with four other booksellers that prompted an outcry and accusations that China had violated Hong Kong's judicial independence, reports said.

    Lee appeared on Chinese TV this month and denied being kidnapped. He gave Hong Kong police the same account.

    The other booksellers also appeared on Chinese television, saying they were detained for "illegal book trading".

    Two have since returned to Hong Kong, and two others are still thought to be in mainland China, BBC reported.
