Online journalist Wang Jing was arrested after taking photos of protesters outside the headquarters of the state-run station CCTV. The journalist is in poor health and her condition has deteriorated in custody, Radio Free Asia reported. Wang was beaten repeatedly by local police and force-fed after she staged hunger strikes to protest her mistreatment, her lawyer said. Her case is still under investigation and, as of CPJ's prison census in late 2015, she had not been charged.
