Vietnam Frees Anti-State Blogger, US Calls For More Releases

HANOI (Reuters) - Vietnam has released a high-profile blogger who has traveled to the United States, the American embassy said on Sunday, but a human right group said the move extended a "cynical" practice by Hanoi to send its critics into exile. Ta Phong Tan, a former police officer, was sentenced to 10 years in jail in 2012 for "anti-state propaganda" after she was arrested for writing in her blog about human rights and corruption.
