A pro-democracy demonstrator burns a letter next to pictures of missing staff members of a publishing house and a bookstore during a protest to call for an investigation behind their disappearance, outside the Chinese liaison office in Hong KongBy James Pomfret HONG KONG (Reuters) - Britain said on Friday a missing Hong Kong seller of gossipy books on China's leaders had likely been "involuntarily removed" to China from Hong Kong, constituting a "serious breach" of a longstanding bilateral treaty between the U.K. and China. China's Foreign Ministry condemned the British report as "gesticulation", although it made no direct mention of the missing bookseller. In a six-monthly report to parliament on the state of freedoms in the former British colony, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond wrote that Lee Bo, a British passport holder who disappeared from Hong Kong in late December, was probably taken to China against his will.
