Posted at 11:23PM Monday 20 Jan 2014

A Hong Kong-based publisher who was working to release a dissident's book about President Xi Jinping has been detained on the mainland for nearly three months.

Yao Wentian, 73, the chief editor of Morning Bell Press, was taken into custody on October 27 after he was "lured" to Shenzhen on the pretence of delivering paint to a long-time friend, said a person who has spoken to Yao's wife.
