BEIJING — One of five leading Chinese feminist advocates said she went through lengthy and verbally abusive interrogations after she was conditionally released in a case that has attracted international attention.
Wu Rongrong, a 30-year-old advocate for women’s rights, said in a statement Saturday that she endured an eight-hour police interrogation in a hotel room in the eastern city of Hangzhou.
Wu and four others were detained last month, just ahead of International Women’s Day, as they were planning to hand out stickers and flyers against sexual harassment in several Chinese cities.
Foreign governments, rights groups and luminaries including U.
SANAA, Yemen — Saudi-led coalition warplanes launched dozens of air strikes on Yemen’s southern port city of Aden Saturday, as Shiite Houthi rebels and their allies mobilized hundreds of reinforcements in an effort to wrest control of the city from militias supporting embattled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, security officials and eyewitnesses said.
The officials said opposing fighters faced off in fierce street battles in the Aden neighborhoods of Khour Makser and Dar Saad as the Houthis try to gain a foothold in the districts.
Eyewitness Fahmy al-Salal said coalition air strikes in Aden killed scores of Houthis and their allies — security personnel loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Western governments and the Sunni Arab countries in the coalition say the Houthis are being armed and financed by Shiite powerhouse Iran.
