Hospitalised dissident awaits permission to leave China

Plainclothes security guards eat ice creams as they stand outside the hospital where Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng is staying in Beijing on May 5, 2012. The woman, who expressed dissatisfaction with the Chinese government's treatment of petitioners, also asked to visit Chen. Blind activist Chen left US protection under a controversial deal reached on May 2 but has since said that he wants to go to the United States. AFP PHOTO / Ed Jones
