BEIJING – An outspoken Chinese lawyer said Wednesday he was abducted and beaten for hours, and accused of causing unrest by representing clients with complaints of official corruption and police abuse.

Li said he wasn’t sure if he would be able to continue working. He returned to his office the day after the attack and found his lawyer’s license was missing. A portable hard drive and his computer memory had been wiped clean, he said.
