Victim No. 3

The bad news in Mr. Kristof's article this morning was finding out that Yahoo! had helped the Chinese government put a 3rd dissident behind bars.

This Salon article explains that Jiang Lijun was sentenced to 4 years for attempting to set up a Democratic Liberal party (and allegedly planning a fake bomb threat, which I am sceptical of) based on evidence supplied by Yahoo!.

The article also informs us that Shi Tao is being forced to work in a jewelry factory, has lost weight, and is not allowed to write.
