China detains man for Twitter joke on party meet

In this undated photo released by his supporters, Zhai Xiaobing sits at a restaurant in Beijing. Hundreds of Chinese Internet users are rallying around the Beijing blogger who has been detained by police after posting a joke on Twitter about the pivotal Communist Party congress. Zhai's Nov. 5 tweet suggested the next movie in the "Final Destination" horror franchise would be about the Great Hall of the People collapsing on party delegates. A Miyun county police officer told The Associated Press on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, that Zhai was being investigated for "spreading terrorist information." (AP Photo/Supporters of Zhai Xiaobing)
