A Chinese dissident named Chen Siming, who has become known for posting pictures to commemorate the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, is pleading for help from an airport in Taiwan after getting detained in China.

The human rights group “Chinese Human Rights Defenders” is urging Taiwan to help Chen seek asylum in the U.S. or Canada, even though the island doesn’t have a formal refugee policy.
