Four Hong Kong booksellers featuring work critical of Communist Party go missing
- The four men are believed to have been detained in China after having traveled from Hong Kong to Thailand and Mainland China, though they have been unable to report their location.
- The men work for Sage Communications, a company that has published titles critical of the Chinese president and Communist elite.
- The detention comes as Beijing continues encroaching upon free press in Hong Kong, having bought up a major publishing house in the city earlier in the year.
