CHINESE BLOGGER HAO WU has been released:

Hao Wu, an independent filmmaker and blogger arrested by Chinese police in February, was released from detention Tuesday, according to his sister Nina Wu.

“Thank you, everyone, for your concern, but he needs some silence for now,” his sister wrote on her personal blog, adding that updates on him would be posted later.

Mr. Wu was unavailable for comment, and the terms of his release and his degree of freedom remain unclear. A person close to the matter confirmed that Mr. Wu was at home with family in Beijing.

Well, that’s good news as far as it goes.
