Ai Weiwei: latest news

Associated Press reports ("Chinese artist Ai Weiwei: Free in body, not voice") on the recent release of China's best-known detainee (on whom see Art & Artifice posts here and earlier).  The release is said to be the result of his confessing to the charges of tax evasion which he has always denied. It has been suggested that he is under a gagging order -- which, if true, it would obviously be difficult for him to confirm.
