A CHINESE journalist has been arrested for subversion after Inspector Knacker of Bejing managed to get hold of some of his Hotmail emails to the "Land of the Free".

The mails were published in the US under the pseudonyms of "Night Wolf" or "Wolf Howling in the Night".

Li Yuanlong, 45, works for the Bijie Daily in the southwestern province of Guizhou. He wrote essays on unemployment and rural poverty to US-based news portals Dajiyuan and Boxun which he filed by Hotmail.

It is not clear how the Chinese authorities got hold of the emails. Microsoft is saying nuttin and so far neither has Bejing.
