|Chinese woman jailed over Twitter post [bbc.co.uk] |
A woman in China has been sentenced to a year in a labour camp after posting a message on the social networking website Twitter.
The fiancee of human rights activist Cheng Jianping told the BBC she had been accused of disrupting social order, but her message had been a joke.
She had repeated a Twitter comment urging nationalist protesters to smash Japan's pavilion at the Shanghai Expo, adding the words "Charge, angry youth".
