Hong Kong bookseller `involuntarily removed` to China: Britain

Hong Kong: Britain said Friday it believes a Hong Kong bookseller feared detained by China was “involuntarily removed to the mainland” in its strongest comments yet on a case that has rocked the city.

The disappearance of Lee Bo, who holds a British passport and publishes books critical of Chinese politics, was a “serious breach” of an agreement signed with Beijing before the city was handed back to China in 1997, said foreign secretary Philip Hammond in a new report.
