Chen Guangcheng tells Channel 4 News he left the US embassy for hospital as part of an “agreement” with the Chinese government, and that despite promises, no-one from the US embassy is there.
Chen had been under protection at the US embassy in Beijing after escaping from house arrest last Friday.
He left the embassy for hospital on Wednesday morning, although he told Channel 4 News this was part of an agreement with the Chinese government rather than because of a medical emergency.
“Nobody from the (US) Embassy is here. I don’t understand why. They promised to be here,” he added. . .
