A Chinese activist accused of posting subversive articles on the Internet was sentenced to six years in prison for "defaming" the government, state media said Monday. Xinhua News Agency said the sentence for Zhang Jianhong was handed down by the Ningbo Intermediate People's Court in Zhejiang province in eastern China. Calls to the court in the city south of Shanghai were not answered Monday night. Xinhua said Zhang was the former editor in chief of a Chinese Web site called "Aiqinhai," or "Aegean Sea," and had written articles that defamed the Chinese government and amounted to agitation aimed at toppling the government.
