BEIJING — A 13-year-old American boy campaigning to turn the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea into a peace park has been taken away by Chinese police after staging a brief protest near Tiananmen Square.

Jonathan Lee unfurled a sign saying "peace treaty" and "nuclear free DMZ children's peace forest" as he stood outside the Forbidden City on Monday.A man presumed to be a plainclothes officer grabbed Lee's sign less than a minute later and waved away journalists who had been contacted by Lee's family ahead of time.
