Batman manhandled

British-born Hollywood actor Christian Bale has been raising awareness of China’s poor human rights record by attempting to visit a human rights lawyer under house arrest.
    Mr Bale, star of Batman, was allegedly ‘roughed up’ by militia who were guarding the entrance to where blind activist Chen Guangcheng lives. Mr Chen has been under house arrest since being released in 2010 from a four-year prison sentence.
    According to reports in The Times, Mr Bale was in China to promote his new film, The flowers of war, when he took a CNN camera crew with him to attempt to see Mr Chen.
