"Artist Ai Weiwei, the most high-profile victim of a sweeping crackdown on activists in China, returned home late Wednesday after nearly three months in detention, saying he was fine and conditions of his release meant he could not say more. The official Xinhua News Agency said Ai had confessed to tax evasion, accusations his family had long denied and which activists had denounced as a false premise for detaining him." (06/22/11)
