London artists rally around detained Weiwei

Community hopes show of solidarity will help aid release of outspoken Chinese sculptor.

    London's artistic community is hoping a show of solidarity will help bring the release of Ai Weiwei, the outspoken Chinese sculptor.

    Ai Weiwei, 53, is being investigated on suspicion of economic crimes, which his family has said are an unfounded excuse to silence his criticism of the government.

    Nadim Baba reports from London.
