HONG KONG-CHINA-CANADA-RIGHTS-MISSWORLD

Anastasia Lin, a 25-year-old actress crowned Miss World Canada, gives a press conference in Hong Kong on November 27, 2015 after China blocked her from travelling to the seaside resort city of Sanya for next month's contest. Canada's Chinese-born Miss World contender was stuck in Hong Kong after being banned on November 26 from taking a flight bound for mainland China, where the beauty pageant will take place on December 19, for what she claims is due to her human rights activism.
