Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng is seen in a wheelchair at Chaoyang hospital in Beijing on May 2. After escaping from house arrest in Shandong Province, the blind activist made his way 300 miles to seek refuge at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. The daring escape led to frantic diplomatic negotiations between the two countries over Chen's status as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in the country for high-level talks. The U.S. released him into Chinese care, but declined China's call for an apology. Chen's ultimate fate remains unclear, though a new arrangement announced Friday would allow him to study law at an American university.
