BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese protesters gave a raucous welcome for House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, painting red slogans and crying out for the lawmaker to live up to her reputation as a foe of human rights abuses.
Police quickly dragged away the small group demonstrating in front of a central government office -- far from any of the sites visited by Pelosi and other Congress members, who have been focused on climate change negotiations.

Among the lawyers now under threat is one defending a noted Tibetan Buddhist monk and others helping parents whose children died in last year's devastating earthquake in Sichuan province.
