Robert speaks with Dr. Lili Feng, an immunologist at Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, California, about her arrest on December 16th by Chinese authorities. She was released yesterday and is being deported to the United States tomorrow. Feng says she went to China to explain to the Communist Party why they should not feel threatened by practitioners of Falun Gong. Instead, she was detained in an unheated room with 30 other women, not allowed to bathe and was forced to make brushes for 12 hours a day.
