BEIJING (AP) -- After spending months in hiding, a founder of an outlawed Chinese meditation-exercise sect has resurfaced in Guam, where China is blocking his efforts to get political asylum, a human rights group reported Saturday.
Despite a nationwide manhunt, Zhang Hongbao eluded Chinese police and in February reached Guam, a U.S. territory 3,700 miles west of Hawaii, the Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy said.
Zhang founded the Zhong Gong sect in 1987, and millions practiced its exercises.
