US says blind China activist's visa is ready
US says visas for blind China activist and his family are ready, waiting for Beijing approval
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The State Department says U.S. visas for Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng (chehn gwahng-chung) and his family are ready for them to travel to America once Beijing gives the green light.

Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday the visa processing was completed more than a week ago for Chen, his wife and two children, to allow him to study in New York.

Chen, a blind legal activist, has been at a Beijing hospital after his flight from house arrest to the U.S. Embassy in late April, triggering a diplomatic crisis.



China has said it would accept Chen's application for travel documents to leave the country.

Republican Rep. Chris Smith described Chen's status as "de facto house arrest" as he and his family are barred visitors or from leaving the hospital.
