Police in Taiwan deported an American and a Canadian, both Taiwanese-born dissidents advocating the island's independence from China, after the two allegedly entered the country illegally. About 300 police surrounded Robert Tsai, of Houston, and Leo Yi Shih, of Toronto, as they were driving to speak at a seminar in Taipei organized by a private law foundation. Club-wielding police used tear gas to disperse their supporters and pulled Tsai and Leo out of their car.

Darryl Wong is worried that he has come at the wrong time for the bald eagles. "Supposedly midday they're resting," he tells his cousin Robert Tsai, who is scanning the trees with binoculars. Wong has a camera with a lens almost as big as one of the great birds, "but it's not big enough," he says, "if they don't show."
