HONG KONG – The second most wanted student leader from the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests is trying again to surrender to Chinese authorities.
Wu'er Kaixi tried to turn himself to authorities in Hong Kong as his flight transited through the semiautonomous Chinese city on Monday. He was accompanied by Hong Kong pro-democracy legislator Albert Ho.
It's Wu'er's latest attempt to surrender. He said in a blog post he wants to go back to China to see his ailing parents.
In 2009, he was denied entry to Macau, like nearby Hong Kong a specially administered Chinese region.
Last year he tried to turn himself into the Chinese embassy in Washington. In 2010 he was arrested when he tried to enter the Chinese embassy in Tokyo.
