Chinese-born scholar Song Yongyi has returned to the United States. Chinese authorities arrested the U.S.-based researcher last year on charges of spying but now he's been freed. The research librarian is on his way home to Dickenson, Pennsylvania. Song says he was not tortured in captivity but says Chinese authorities pressured him to confess to crimes he says he never committed.
